Title: Gott erbaut sein himmlisches Heiligtum
Subtitle: Zur Bedeutung von אנדתו in Am 9,6
Author(s): LANG, Martin , MESSNER, Reinhard
Volume: 82 Issue: 1 Date: 2001
The context and the homogeneity of the passage at Am 9,1-6, whose theological assumption is that Heaven and Earth belong together and that the earthly sanctuary is a reflection of the heavenly reality, allow one to assume that אנדה is the connection between heaven and earth founded and established by God. That it refers to a connection between the heavenly sphere and the world and to meditation and communication, embodied by the altar, is also shown by the Jacob tradition and by the standing of the sanctuary at Bethel (Gen 28, but also 35) which occupy an important position in the book of Amos.
