The Victory Song of Miriam: A Comparative Analysis of  Selected Modern Jewish and Christian Commentaries to Exodus 15
Ersta Sköndal Bräcke University College, Department of Diaconal Studies, Church Music and Theology.
2021 (English)In: The Reception of Exodus Motifs in Jewish and Christian Literature: "Let My People Go!" / [ed] Beate Kowalski; Susan Docherty, Leiden: Brill , 2021, p. 11-35Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Camilla von Heijne compares contemporary Jewish and Christian commentaries on the Song of Miriam in Exod 15:20–21. The methodological approach focuses on synchronic interpretations of the present form of the text. Thus, the comparison criteria are three main theological motifs: the deliverance at the sea as the basic theological paradigm of salvation, the portrayal of God`s activities in the Song of Miriam, and the role of Miriam. Additional criteria are the relationship between prose (Exod 14) and hymn (Exod 15), the relationship between Moses and Miriam, the portrayal of the enemies, and the motif of the mountain (15:7). The selected commentaries are new and written by two committed Jewish and Christian theologians. One central result is that all commentaries interpret the song symbolically as a paradigm of deliverance. This chapter is an important contribution to the Jewish-Christian dialogue.
