    Abstract

    KIM, Jeong Bong  and  HUMAN, D J. Nagid: a re-examination in the light of the royal ideology in the ancient near east. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2008, vol.64, n.3, pp. 1475-1497. ISSN 0259-9422.

    This article argues that nagid indicates divinely sanctioned leader of Israel in 1 Samuel 9:1-10:16 and 11:1-11. The use of nagid is intricately interplayed with that of melek in the context of 1 Samuel 8-12. In the Saul tradition (1 Sm 9:1-10:16; 11:1-11) nagid signifies the leadership of Saul as a divinely sanctioned kingship, unlike in the context of the Deuteronomistic History (DH). The royal ideology of the ancient Near East (ANE) provides an ideological background of the kingship of Saul.
