Summary
"Johannes Unsok Ro addresses some of the core themes that are crucially important for understanding the background of the formation of the Hebrew Bible during the Persian and Hellenistic periods, including the relationship between the shaping of the canon and literacy in the Judean community, strangers in the biblical law codes, the socioeconomic structures of Judean communities reflected in the biblical law codes, the development of the theological concept of divine punitive justice, the piety of the poor in certain Psalms, and the concept of poverty in the Dead Sea Scrolls. Ro focuses on the Pentateuch, the Deuteronomistic History, the Prophetic Literature, the Psalms, and the Dead Sea Scrolls to challenge many assumptions and to shed new light on biblical documents produced in this time period"--
