Title: The Chronological Framework of the Deuteronomistic History
Author(s): GALIL, Gershon
Volume: 85 Issue: 3 Date: 2004
This article points out that the series of the minor judges were not included in the deuteronomistic edition of the Book of Judges, and therefore did not form part of the Dtr’s chronology. In the author’s opinion the Dtr constructs a chronological framework spanning 480 years from the Exodus to the establishment ofthe Temple (1Kgs 6,1) and correlates it with the chronological data in Deuteronomy-Samuel.
