Chapter Summary

This selected subject index contains list of names, terms and concepts that occur in the book The books of Kings: sources, composition, historiography and reception.The entries are arranged in alphabetical order from A to X. The book presents one of the most difficult units for analysis in all of the Hebrew Bible. Like the Pentateuch, they have multiple sources and a complex history of assembly. Unlike the Pentateuch, however, they lack, for the most part, anything even remotely resembling ongoing parallel narrative sources by which the history of composition may in some measure be controlled.

Keywords: books of Kings; historiography
