13.07.05 - A Biblical Backgrounder 1 | St Lukes (1780 words)
It was in the children of Israelís political interest then (from around 1300 BCE) to claim that a divine promise was made to their ancestors some 500 years previously that this land would be their land, and to associate these ancestors with three Canaanite holy places.
J, the oldest written source, is dated by scholars to the 900s BCE in Jerusalem, reflecting the worldview of a court writer in the time of the glory of Solomonís reign, where Jerusalem and its temple is the ritual heart of Israel.
E is dated to the 800s BCE, from the by now separated northern kingdom, and downplays the centrality of Jerusalem by emphasising other holy places such as the shrine at Bethel.
