Abstract

DAVIES, Philip. Building a nation: The Jeroboams and the creation of two Israels. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2019, vol.75, n.3, pp.1-4. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v75i3.5018.

This article represents a short reflective essay in honour of the Old Testament scholar Eben Scheffler. It focuses on the writing of the history of ancient Israel texts; examines different approaches to address the history of texts: minimalist and maximalist; and illustrates a minimalist approach in reference to the figure of the Israelite king Jeroboam II.

Keywords : Jeroboam and Jeroboam; Israel; Nationhood; Old Testament scholarship; Northern Kingdom.
