Resumen

TUSHIMA, Cephas T. A.  y  JOS, Nigeria. A King under the Law: The Torah promulgation and its subversion in Jeremiah. Old testam. essays [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.1, pp. 162-181. ISSN 2312-3621.

This paper explores the call of Israel to be a unique people and the implications of this for its leadership styles. It, as such, examines the Torah promulgation for a king subservient to the Law (and its attendant institutions), as prescribed in Deut 17:14-20, vis-à-vis the evolution of Israelite leadership culminating in the monarchy, and the outworking of this in the Deuteronomistic History. The paper ultimately aligns this deuteronomic leadership ideal with the reality of the late pre-exilic experience of the Judahite covenant community, especially as documented in the traditions of Jeremiah's life and ministry. The ensuing consequence of the exile is also looked at. Inferences are drawn from these discussions, outlining trajectories of import for contemporary communities of faith.
