By approaching the book of Jonah historical-critically, it has been indicated that the book of Jonah

The Introduction includes a review of the salient literature. This shows that
many of the studies amount to an unimaginative treatment; little attention has

Kilchör, Benjamin(The Catholic Biblical Association of America, 2015)
In this article, I argue that Deut 25:5-10 has precursors in Leviticus and
Numbers. The subject of levirate marriage picks up the topic of daughters’ right to an
inheritance (Num 27:1-11) and the related problem that ...
