Chapter Summary

This appendix presents the text of judges in three columns: (I) right (C/R), materials that seem to have been assembled/composed under the rhetorical aims of a compiler/redactor; (2) centre (N/D/I), materials copied/edited from traditions now preserved in the book of Numbers, Deuteronomy or Ioshua (an outcrop to the right indicating an editorial insertion/adaptation); (3) left (S), materials apparently copied/edited from an otherwise unknown source (an outcrop to the right indicating a possible editorial insertion/adaptation). This book describes how Judges' rhetorical devices (narrative analogy, entrapment, foreshadowing) inspire its readers to support a divinely appointed Judahite king who endorses the deuteronomic agenda, and illustrates a new method for understanding how plot-layered stories work.
