Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the reconstruction of the Vorlage of J and the character or style of this text. The history of the transmission of the text of the Book of Jeremiah is still not solved. Although it appears that a majority of scholars favours the historical priority of the Vorlage of J over the Vorlage of M, not all scholars are inclined to follow this majority. This chapter deals with some of the arguments put forward by scholars such as Lundbom, Fischer and Van der Kooij against the priority of the Vorlage of J-Jeremiah. After a general discussion, their arguments were evaluated with regard to Jeremiah 29. In author opinion their arguments are not convincing with regard to Jeremiah 29 and it appears therefore that in the case of the chapter J reflects an earlier Vorlage than M.
