[Abstract The text of 1 Kings 20 has presented many exegetes with a fertile plain from which to reap a multitude of historical data about the history of Israel. Various concepts have been developed in order to approach the text, almost always gleaning some historical circumstances behind the text or recounted within the text. Every facet that could lead to a historical reconstruction based on this text has been explored in the last century. But what if such a study misses the point of this text? Maybe the composer of this text sought to present different information to the audience beyond purely historical data. With this in mind, we’ll take a renewed look at the narrative of 1 Kings 20. The text of 1 Kings 20 may or may not be interested in providing the reader with historical details; it is definitely interested in satirizing the king of Aram., AbstractThe text of 1 Kings 20 has presented many exegetes with a fertile plain from which to reap a multitude of historical data about the history of Israel.
