This book explores the cultic-military functions of the tabernacle in the biblical narrative from the exodus to the conquest. Previous studies in this area have focused almost exclusively on the ‘cultic’ functions of the tabernacle and have been confined to a limited range of texts (Exodus 25-31; 35-40). The originality of this book is that it discusses a much more extensive range of material. Insights drawn from this broader perspective highlight the tabernacle’s role in the military domain.
The Tabernacle in the Narrative History of Israel from the Exodus to the Conquest is a distinct addition to knowledge of a much-neglected area of Old Testament research.
