Abstract:The books of 1 and 2 Kings explicitly focus on the ideological motivations of the DtrH, but within this narrative, the text leaves intrinsic clues on the economic structures within ancient Israel. This study uses the anthropological paradigm of Karl Polanyi as a lens to analyze the economic exchange mechanisms in Kings. Contrary to most modernist assumptions, the biblical texts presume that the ancient economies of Israel and Judah relied heavily on substantivist economic systems. Both real and fictive kinship relationships propelled a spirit of outward reciprocity for much palatial and non-elite exchange. Throughout the progression of the Iron Age II period, Israel and Judah also built a redistributive social structure, which crystallized during the seventh century under foreign hegemony. A thorough look at these classifications reveals limited supply-and-demand elements within the social structure in both local and international economic decisions. In line with archaeological, epigraphic and ethnoanthropological evidence, ancient Israel and Judah present themselves largely as a mixed economy in 1 and 2 Kings. Such a determination questions the continuing usefulness of the formalist-substantivist dichotomy in the study of ancient economies, and calls for theories with more robust explanatory powers in studying the ancient economy.
