Abstract:This dissertation examines the creative ways in which the ancient Israelites used genres that were part of the broader ancient Near Eastern cultural repertoire in order to shape a narrative of their early history as a people. Study of the itinerary genre as it is used in administrative documents from Egypt and Mesopotamia illustrates the various conventions and expectations associated with the genre in its primary contexts. Based on study of the itinerary genre as it is used in military narratives from the New Kingdom period in Egypt and the Neo-Assyrian period in Mesopotamia, we can understand the techniques ancient authors used to adapt source documents to a narrative context as well as how they used the generic resources of those documents creatively to shape their narratives. Armed with an understanding of these conventions and techniques, use of the itinerary genre in the wilderness narrative is better understood. Itinerary notices became a sub-feature of the annals genre through creative use of administrative source documents. They were first used in the wilderness narrative as a Priestly author chose the annals as a mode of emplotment for a narrative about the Israelites' return to Zion with their cultic paraphernailia. Subsequent authors, striving to anthologize disparate literatures into a single narrative, incorporated them through revisions to the wilderness narrative, made to read plausibly through use of itinerary notices. The author of Num 33, on the other hand, capitalized on the generic features of administrative documents to create an authoritative version of the wilderness sojourn. This study builds on previous discussions of Pentateuchal composition, yet offers an innovative perspective on compositional models. It will make a contribution to our understanding of how and why the wilderness narrative in the Hebrew Bible was written--and rewritten--and the role it plays in shaping Israelite ethnic identity.
