Cult and Character:Purification Offerings, Day of Atonement, and Theodicy
(2005)
  • Roy Gane, Andrews University
Abstract

Roy Gane critically evaluates Jacob Milgrom's purification-offering theory but ultimately affirms and expands on his seminal insight that theodicy is foundational to the Israelite expiatory system. Gane's conclusions are derived from exegetical study of Hebrew ritual texts and by adapting a systems theory approach to human activity systems.
