Resumen

LOMBAARD, Christo. The question of the fathers as patriarchs in Deuteronomy. Old testam. essays [online]. 2009, vol.22, n.2, pp. 346-355. ISSN 2312-3621.

In an involved argumentation that runs most influentially from Van Seters via Römer and Lohfink, the question of whether the "fathers" in the book of Deuteronomy had indeed initially referred to the patriarchal trio of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has been under discussion since the 1970s. In this article, the debate is taken into review in the light of the author's recently published position on the competition between tradents within post-exilic Israel as reflecting inner-Judean identity politics. His conclusion concurs with Römer's theory, that editorial insertion of the patriarchs' names next to the father references in Deuteronomy is probable.
