Chapter Summary

The Old Testament Society of South Africa (OTSSA) became fifty in 2007. A vast number of books, articles and theses on the Old Testament have been published since then and the society has also become a space where people could work, share and develop as scholars. Old Testament scholarship here at the southern tip of Africa is firmly imbedded in the western scholarly tradition and this is indeed a strong point of the OTSSA. One result of the constant reflection on history since the nineteenth century is the discovery of the individual and individuality. This was something quite new in western hermeneutics. The people of the exile experienced so much destruction due to Gods rage that survival seemed unlikely. Jerusalem and the temple were destroyed, the king was murdered, many people were taken into exile and their hopes brutally shattered.

Keywords: exile; OTSSA; western hermeneutics
