Chapter Summary

This chapter shows that intermediate between Elephantine and Qumran in the Old Testament has its historic place. Elephantine and Qumran are two Jewish archives and at the same time they named two opposite poles between which the Old Testament moves geographically, time and content. The chapter exposes the problem in research historical context and gives some examples which demonstrate the transition from non-biblical to biblical Judaism in the Old Testament. It indicates the direction in which one might look for a possible solution to the problem. The chapter describes the archaeological and epigraphic evidence for the existence of the two provinces of Judah and Samaria. The marginalization and the exclusion of the specific design of the world, might have been the reason that the margins of society, has developed an alternative world, the world of biblical Judaism. The original text of the chapter is in German.
