The Exodus and the spade: The impact of archaeology on the interpretation of the book of Exodus  [cached]
H.L. Bosman
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2009, DOI: 10.4102/hts.v58i4.619
Abstract: The interpretation of the book of Exodus is used as an example of the different ways in which archaeological discoveries influenced the course of biblical exegesis. Special emphasis will be placed on matters such as the Amarna letters and the Habiru, Merneptah Stele and the date of the Exodus and the Egyptian background of the Exodus. In conclusion it will be argued that critical dialogue and mutual respect must exist between archaeology and biblical studies. The theological interpretation of biblical texts is inevitably an interdisciplinary endeavor and archaeology is an academic discipline that must be part of the critical dialogue with biblical exegesis.
THE THEOLOGICAL INTERPRETATION OF THE BOOK OF EXODUS AS NARRATIVES CONCERNING ORIGIN AND MIGRATION AS AN ONGOING NEGOTIATION OF IDENTITY BY THE TIV PEOPLE OF NIGERIA  [cached]
Jonathan Weor
Scriptura , 2012, DOI: 10.7833/108-1-8
Abstract: In his search for the components or aspects of dialogue with the Bible particularly in Africa, West (2008:48) mentions five comparative approaches of Ukpong (2000:17-18). Using the third approach, which deals with the interpretation of biblical texts against the background of African cultures, religions and life experiences aimed at new understanding of the biblical text that would be informed by the African context and circumstance, this article argues that the Tiv people of Nigeria read and interpret Exodus as an ongoing identity negotiation and not merely as a historical, literary, liberating, postcolonial and feminist text as it has been read and interpreted over centuries by different exegetes. The article describes the narratives of origin and migration of the Tiv and establishes their relevance and/or impact on the theological apparition and interpretation of Exodus traditions amongst the Tiv as an ongoing progression of identity formation. doi: 10.7833/108-1-8
INTERPRETING THE EXODUS AMONG THE NGONI PEOPLE  [cached]
Edwin Zulu
Scriptura , 2012, DOI: 10.7833/108-1-9
Abstract: The interpretation of the Ngoni of Exodus 14:21-31 makes a comparison with the Israelites possible. Both the Israelites and the Ngoni crossed an expanse of water to reach their new land; The Israelites crossed the Red Sea and the Ngoni crossed the Zambezi River. Moreover, just as God provided the Israelites passage by facilitating the crossing of the Red Sea on dry land in a miraculous way, the Ngoni were aided by the locals, the Chikunda people, by carrying them in their canoes to cross the river. The Egyptians perished in the sea; the Ngoni killed the Chikunda after being aided by them. The role of the King is also mentioned; in the biblical story Moses plays a significant role as the agent of God. In a similar manner, King Zwangendaba's role is highlighted in the entire episode. These narratives of origin and migration (both Biblical and Ngoni) are important for the formation of identity amongst the Ngoni in Zambia. doi: 10.7833/108-1-9
The theological paraphrasing of history: The Exodus tradition in the Wisdom of Solomon  [cached]
Hendrik L. Bosman
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2012,
Abstract: This study of the reinterpretation of the exodus tradition in the Wisdom of Solomon investigated the possibility that the reinterpretation entailed the alignment of history and wisdom. To come to grips with this alignment, attention had to be paid to its Greco-Roman context, whilst also taking into consideration the literary and theological structure of the Wisdom of Solomon, as well as its rhetoric and genre. In a theologically creative manner, Wisdom (as divine personification) and history (as memories of salvation during the Exodus) were combined in the Wisdom of Solomon to convince the Jews in the diaspora that justice would prevail – not only in this life but also thereafter. By means of poetic imagery, rhetorical skill, historical reinterpretation and imaginative wisdom theology, religious identity were not only bolstered to resist a dominant Greco-Roman culture but also to develop a positive view of creation according to the values of wisdom exemplified by the reinterpreted Exodus traditions.
EXODUS TO THE PROMISED LAND AS EVINCED IN NINETEENTH- AND TWENTIETH- CENTURY AMERICAN FICTION  [cached]
Cristina Denisa Arsene-Onu
Language and Literature : European Landmarks of Identity , 2011,
Abstract: Exodus has been one of the favorite fictional topics undertaken by American fiction writers due to the fact that they belong to the so-called “Chosen People” that were not to trespass God’s covenant. My paper identifies two major Exodus themes: the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt (the Biblical wilderness, and the Promised Land) and human/divine justice as considered in the Bible. Observing the typological concept, these themes are analyzed in connection with their American antitype themes: the Pilgrim Fathers’ Exodus from Europe (the American continent as a counterpart to the Biblical Mosaic wilderness and America (New England) as the Promised Land) and the Puritans’ judicial system.
SOLUTION OF HEAT CONDUCTION PROBLEMS BY EXODUS METHOD  [cached]
Bogumi? Staniszewski,Jerzy Suski
Bulletin of the Institute of Heat Engineering , 1979,
Abstract: The principles of Exodus method and its application to the solution of heat conduction problems have been presented. The modeling of particles motions according to several finite difference schemes have been considered and various boundaryconditions have been analysed.As examples of the application of the method two particular problems have been solved: unsteady heat conduction in an infinite cylinder subjected to the boundary conditions of the third kind and twodimensional steady heat conduction in a square with three different kinds of boundary conditions.
Phytosociology of the farm Haribes in the Nama-Karoo biome of southern Namibia
Ben Strohbach,Willem J. Jankowitz
Koedoe : African Protected Area Conservation and Science , 2012, DOI: 10.4102/koedoe.v54i1.1038
Abstract: Limited historic vegetation data (prior to the 1980s) are available for Namibia. Finding such historic data at Haribes prompted a follow-up survey of the vegetation. We present a classification of the recent data in this paper as a first step towards comparing the two data sets. Six new associations (three with two subassociations each) are formally described. The landscape at Haribes is dominated by a pan with surrounding hummock dunes. The pan supports the Lycio cinereum – Salsoletum, whilst on the hummock dunes the Salsolo – Tetragonietum schenckii can be found. The surrounding plains and escarpment can be divided into three landforms: the torras with the Monsonio umbellatae – Boscietum foetidae, the ranteveld with the Acacio senegal – Catophractetum alexandri (and two subassociations) and calcrete ridges with the Zygophylo pubescentis – Leucosphaeretum bainesii. Dry river beds on the farm support two subassociations of Anthephoro pubescentis – Ziziphodetum mucronatae. The area covered by each dominant landform has been calculated after being mapped. The composition and diversity of the associations are briefly compared to other known vegetation descriptions within the Nama-Karoo. Since November 2011, Haribes has been used as a resettlement farm. This may result in the overutilisation of the limited grazing resources, to the extent that the present, fairly dense Acacio senegal – Catophractetum alexandri of the ranteveld is feared to become degraded to resemble the Monsonio umbellatae – Boscietum foetidae of the torras. Conservation implications: This paper describes six plant associations of the Nama-Karoo biome in arid southern Namibia. The information presented forms a baseline description, which can be used for future monitoring of the vegetation under altered land use.

Hartnell, Anna. Rewriting Exodus: American Futures from Du Bois to Obama.
Despina Feleki
European Journal of American Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.4000/ejas.9471
Abstract: Anna Hartnell’s good knowledge of black political and religious discourse, dating from slavery to the present post-9/11 and post-Katrina America, grants her the confidence to draw parallels and to highlight the dividing lines that connect the political speeches of the most eminent African American politicians and thinkers in the history of the American nation. In an effort to map the Exodus rhetoric in the 20th and the early 21st century, the book explores the biblical Exodus text as it has b...

THE EXODUS AND IDENTITY FORMATION IN VIEW OF THE YORUBA ORIGIN AND MIGRATION NARRATIVES  [cached]
Funlola Olojede
Scriptura , 2012, DOI: 10.7833/108-1-7
Abstract: Certain elements of the origin and migration narratives of the Yoruba such as a common ancestor, common ancestral home, common belief in the Supreme Deity provide a basis for identity formation and recognition among the people. It is argued that the narratives help to bring to light the memories of the Exodus and Israel's recollection of Yahweh as the root of its identity. The juxtaposition of cosmogonic myths and migration theories foregrounds the elements of identity formation of the Yoruba people and have a parallel in the blending of both cosmic and migration elements in Exodus 14-15:18. This blending also points out clearly the role of Yahweh as the main character in the Sea event. doi: 10.7833/108-1-7
