GERICKE, Jaco. The epistemology of Israelite religion: Introductory proposals for a descriptive approach. Old testam. essays [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.1, pp.49-73. ISSN 2312-3621.
In this article I offer a venturesome introduction to the possibility of an analytic epistemology of Israelite religion. The aim is to propose some descriptive concerns for the biblical scholar interested in what the Hebrew Bible assumed about the justification of religious knowledge and belief in the world of the text. Topics touched on are evidentialism, divine testimony, the problem of allotheism, the concept of divine revelation and the logic of belief revision.
