Tradition and Interpretation

By G. W. Anderson | Go to book overview
longer can it be readily assumed that the Decalogue of Exod. 20:2-17 and the Book of the Covenant of Exod. 20:22-23:19 were included in E, or that H was incorporated by P into his narrative. Other possibilities in the formation of the Pentateuch must be reckoned with, and more importance must be attached to understanding the way in which the over-all unity came into being. It has often been remarked that the redactors who gave the Pentateuch its present form contributed as significantly to its creation as the authors of the various source documents which literary analysis has rediscovered. Each author or redactor introduced his own layer of meaning and interpretation. Nevertheless, so far as illuminating the role of the redactors is concerned, it has proved much more difficult in practice to show the nature and scope of their work, than it has been to show what the authors of the individual source documents were seeking to achieve.
