------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 9/1/2016  The Dead Sea scrolls  Scholars believe that the Old Testament was written by multiple authors o This is because one author criticizes the teachings of an earlier author o Written by many people over many centuries before it was condensed into one solid text  The covenant in the Hebrew scriptures describes: o The contractual relationship made between God and the people after Exodus o This is the first time God has made a contractual agreement  He said he would deliver the people as long as they followed his law  The Hebrew people’s promise to uphold God’s law o Must not eat flesh with life blood in it o Man shall not shed the blood of man o Establishes occasions for animal sacrifices (usually a lamb)  A Passover offering  This Passover must be celebrated for all time if you are to be God’s chosen people  Israel and Judah were the two main regions of Egypt  King Solomon: o A king who takes from his people o Similar to Gilgamesh in his greed o People didn’t seem to mind this too much because they want a strong ruler to keep them safe and fight for them  David: o Still speculation if he actually existed o He takes nomadic people (shepherds) and turns them into a more settled people  Turn themselves into a state  Jerusalem was chosen because it did not have a major significance to any of the tribes and a good location o Probably comes from a good family and is accepted o From Jerusalem, David and Solomon are able to expand their rule  Chastity and adultery were not of concern to these two leaders  Women were not the only ones that were seen as second in society, not all misogynistic  After Solomon, things start to deteriorate a bit o People are not necessarily following the ten commandments o The Profit Jeremiah: says that there needs to be a change in human behavior  This is foreshadowing the birth of Christ  New Babylonians: Chaleans o A new form of government and people begin to emerge o Take over Jerusalem and conquered their temple, etc. o Many of them go to Babylon  Hebrew people are now trying to figure out how to still be God’s chosen people if we are not in his land and in his temple-start to question if they still are God’s chosen people if he let this happen to them  Many Hebrew people turn to experts in the legal field o Rabbis-experts in Hebrew law The Persian Empire:  Largest empire that has ever emerged thus far in history  Cyrus is the leader – conquered Babylon o Allows the Hebrew people to go back into their own land o Fairly happy to let people govern themselves as long as they pay tribute to the Persian empire and don’t rebel against the government
