In some respects, this book had its beginning in one of my earliest areas of interest in biblical studies-what I then construed as 'sub-surface culture', meaning those mental or cultural features in ancient Israel which are only indirectly indicated on the surface of biblical literature but which emerged to full view in post-biblical sources.

First published in hardback in August 1985, Professor Fishbane's book offers the first comprehensive analysis of the phenomenon of textual analysis in ancient Israel. It explores the rich tradition of exegesis prior to the development of biblical interpretation in early classical Judaism and the earliest Christian communities, and examines four main categories of exegesis: scribal, legal, aggadic, and mantological. In studying this subject, it emerges that the Hebrew Bible is not only the foundation document for the exegetical culture of Judaism and Christianity, but an exegetical work in its own right. Professor Fishbane, who has added new material in appendices to this paperback edition, has been awarded three major prizes for this work: the National Jewish Book Award 1986, the Biblical Archaeological Society 1986 Publication Award, and the Kenneth B. Smilen Literary Award.

Fishbane published this in 1985, and it is considered so authoritative and comprehensive that everybody cites it.

"In traditional Judaism and Christianity (Roman and Orthodox) ... revelation is comprehensible only through the authoritative tradition of interpretation" (p 2). Therefore "the contents of interpretation are part of the ...divine revelation...explain...the emergence of the well-known Pharisaic chain of tradition...and...system of oral exegesis...trend can be found in ...Qumran" (p 4).

Assessing when and how this tradition began is therefore of monumental importance to these religions. Complicating this problem is the time when oral traditions alone were passed. Once the traditions took written form ancient Israelite scribes began to study the semantic ambiguities and deeper meaning of the texts.

Occasionally, we find evidence that an ancient scribe has altered a text slightly, to make it clearer, or less ambiguous. There is clear evidence that ancient scribes were well educated and professional, and that they treated the texts with great reverence. "Ezra...was both a priest and a scribe, and ...his retinue of interpreters were clerics as well" (p 83).

Fishbane covers both the legal expansions and the aggadic exegesis of scripture, including the various schools and beliefs about both.

When discussing the "legal reasoning preserved in inner-biblical exegesis, the analogical mode must be ranked of paramount importance" (p 247).
