The Literature Page
As noted, the Bible is one of the books I am now reading for history and literary reasons. I will limit myself to the Hebrew Bible, the Pentateuch, the Torah for now.
Back in 2012, I read a biography of the bible, by Karen Armstrong, Notes are here. I am now carrying that small book in my backpack and will re-read it and update the notes now that I have a better feeling for the authorship and the first five books of the Bible.
Karen's biography begins, Chapter 1, Torah --
In 597 BCE, the tiny state of Judah in the highlands of Canaan broke its vassalage treaty with Nebuchadnezzar, ruler of the powerful Babylonian empire. It was a catastrophic mistake. Three months later, the Babylonian army besieged Jerusalem, Judah's capital. The young king surrendered immediately and was deported to Babylonia, together with some ten thousand of the citizens who made the state viable: priests, military leaders, craftsmen, and metal workers. As they left Jerusalem, the exiles would have taken one last look at the temple built on Mount Zion by King Solomon (c. 970 - 930 BCE), the centre of their national and spiritual life, sadly aware that in all likelihood they would never see it again. Their fears were realized; in 586, after yet another rebellion in Judah, Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Jerusalem and burned Solomon's temple to the ground.Key words:
- Judah: southern kingdom
- Canaan: land of milk and honey; the promise(d) land
- Babylonia: Babel
- Jerusalem: capital
- Mount Zion
- Solomon's Temple
