Observations on Judah’s Social and Economic History and the Dating of the Laws in Deuteronomy

  • Ernst Axel Knauf

Abstract

Nadav Na’aman’s recent dating of the Deuteronomic Law by social history is methodologically seminal, even if I disagree with the substance of his argument. In this article, I advance the case that the care of Deuteronomy for the ‘displaced Judahite” (גר) fits the 6th century much better than the 7th, as Na’aman argues.
