^^Here in theme of the of the conquest of the Promised Land is introduced and the first victories of the Israelites take place. Toward the end of the book the figures of Balaam and Balak appear. "At the beginning, Israel is depicted as sojourning at how Israel arrived there or as to what happened to her there. The book of Numbers is part of the total narrative of the Pentateuch and must be looked at within that wider framework," writes Professor Noth.

PRODUCT DETAIL

Martin Noth

Martin Noth, a most resourceful biblical historian, was a native of Dresden, Germany. On the completion of his studies at the Universities of Erlangen, Leipzig, and Rostock, he initiated his teaching career at the University of Griefswald (1927-30). Noth then taught Old Testament studies at the University of Konigsberg (1930-45) before moving to the University of Bonn, where he was Distinguished Professor of New Testament Exegesis and president of its evangelical theological seminary (1945-65). From 1965 until his death three years later, Noth was director of the Institute for the Study of the Holy Land in Jerusalem, a position once held by his teacher, Albrecht Alt. In addition to his pioneering tradition-critical work on the Pentateuch (A History of Pentateuchal Traditions, made available in English in 1972), Noth authored perceptive commentaries on the books of Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers (whose English translations appeared in 1962, 1965, and 1968, respectively). Noth is mainly known to English-speaking readers through his classic, The History of Israel (1960). Though Noth's innovative historical reconstruction of pre-monarchical Israel as a tribal and cultic "amphictyony," an analogy to early Greek society, has suffered criticism in recent years, related ideas regarding ancient Israel's gradual settlement in the land of Canaan have proven useful. Moreover, many scholars have been influenced by Noth's theory that the book of Deuteronomy is no appendage to the Tetrateuch (Genesis--Numbers), but is instead the initial component of a large, complex literary work known as the Deuteronomistic History, which incorporates the Old Testament books of Joshua, Judges, 1-2 Samuel, and 1-2 Kings. This historical witness, says Noth, received its final editing in the sixth century B.C. after the dual monarchies of Israel and Judah had fallen to the enemy.
