Chapter Summary

The task of a theology of the Old Testament is in recent opinion fundamentally in the statements of the Old Testament about the God of Israel, that is, about its salvation historical deeds, in their context "retell". For ancient Israel, the "saving acts" ever had special significance, but the fact is unmistakable that in many cases an asset or a variation of these meanings occurred. Adequate "retelling" must be determined by the significance of each story tradition topics. Subject to these saving acts is the "leadership of Israel in the desert", commonly known as "desert tradition", become topical again by the finds of Qumran. The desert tradition has under gone manifold changes in the course of its history, has been long recognized and need not be surprised, given the breadth and complexity of the existing certificates.
