Details

This work concerns the Deuteronomistic history and the earliest traditions dealing with Elijah. The central aim has been to resolve the literary history of 1Kings 1719:18 in its different parts which were originally composed by different authors and editors. Some of the consequent tensions in these traditions are severe enough to be described as "collisions": Yahweh is manifested through fire in one passage, but is contradicted in another passage. The narrative concerning drought in Israel is interrupted by a story about rival sacrifices which has nothing to do with the original theme.
