Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of subject terms that are mentioned in the book titled The Significance of Sinai: Traditions about Sinai and Divine Revelation in Judaism and Christianity. Miraculous theophany, anthropomorphic description of the divine, the role of Moses as actor or mediator, the response of Israel, were all handled with exegetical skills that released the story of what happened and especially the divine participant in it from the control of the text itself so that everything could be appropriated afresh. For Jewish artists Moses and Sinai have non-typological timeless immediacy, especially in the modern period, and recent Jewish architecture has created mountainous synagogues as a sign of differentiated identity.
