Portrait of the Kings: The Davidic Prototype in Deuteronomistic Poetics by Alison L. Joseph

Joseph examines the narrative techniques used in the Deuteronomistic History to portray Israel's kings. While David is constructed as a model of adherence to the covenant, Jeroboam is constructed as the ideal opposite; other kings are characterized along one or the other of these two models. The narrative functions didactically, instructing kings and the people of Judah regarding the consequences of disobedience. Joseph identifies differences between pre-exilic and exilic redactions in the Deuteronomistic History, offering a deepened understanding of the worldview and theology of this important biblical work.
