    declares the receptor or prolocutor so. By classifying the figure in this manner, the author legitimates his message through cultic or ethical purity as the figure in the narrative becomes impeachable. This term, paired with justice, occurs in Akkadian literature (kittum u mīs̆arum) as an “ethical ideal,” and the same idea existed in Hebraic thought as the base on which Torah worked.

I am not very familiar with the Jewish faith nor do I know a lot of people who practice Judaism. That is why I chose this cultural event to observe…

She barely remembered her parents; they were dark, shadowy ghosts, flickers of partial recognition in the back of her consciousness.

    concerned the author in Jub. 3:10, the laws of which were still in force for the Second Temple reader since the Heavenly Tablets were still authoritative (Jub. 23:32). In Jub. 24:33 the author wrote of Isaac’s curse on the Philistines. The Second Temple reader learned that “it is written and engraved concerning him in the heavenly tablets to be done to him in the day of judgment” (24:33), creating a similar picture to curse tablets, which identifies various uses for Heavenly Tablets in this…
