The Song of the Sea

The Date of Composition and Influence of Exodus 15:1-21

Series:

Brian D. Russell

The Song of the Sea: The Date of Composition and Influence of Exodus 15:1-21 offers a thorough exegetical study of the Song and its intertextual influence across the Hebrew Bible. It argues through a convergence of three lines of evidence – linguistic, historical, and intertextual – for a composition of the poetic sections of Exodus 15:1-21 in the mid-twelfth century b.c.e. Courses on the book of Exodus, Hebrew poetry, or intertextuality in the Hebrew Bible will find this text useful.
