Chapter Summary

In Deuteronomic history, the storytellers and historians are not content in style to describe events happening contexts and historical processes. Instead, they let their representation of events often precede their binding announcement and noted then that the promise had also arrived. This results in stories, compositions and histories that run after the promise-fulfillment scheme. Within the Deuteronomistic history, the promise-fulfillment scheme is used as a narrative stylistic device more than sixty times. According to these narrative patterns, conquest and war stories are designed around the Jordan pulling Israel, the conquest of Jericho and Ai, the victories over Adonizedek and Jabin of Hazor, Judas train against the Canaanites and Deborah and Barak's victory over Sisera. The text overarching function of promises occurs in the Book of Judges particularly evident in the narrative wreaths, which ranges to the figures Gideon, Jephthah and Samson. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Deuteronomic history; Book of Judges; narrative patterns; promise-fulfillment scheme
