Abstract :
Jer 31,33-34 challenges the program of revelation that is set up in Deuteronomy 31 and further refined in 34,9.10-12. Through interwoven references to Deuteronomy and other passages in the Pentateuch, the role of Moses’ Torah, its mediators, its mediation through teaching, and its function in achieving pardon are reconsidered. Jeremiah’s new covenant goes beyond discussing Deuteronomy or dtr issues. Rather, it engages in a critical debate with a key issue of the post-exilic redaction of the Pentateuch: the discourse around the medium and mediators of revelation in post-Mosaic times.
