Abstract:This study is an examination of the nature of the relationship between Yahweh and the nation of Israel as set forth in the Sinaitic Covenant. The hypothesis is that Israel's fundamental identity in the Pentateuchal covenant is that of a son rather than a vassal as is so often argued due to the presence of the ancient Near Eastern political treaty elements in the covenants made at Sinai and Moab. The purpose of this study is not to discount the existence of the suzerain-vassal relationship image, but to establish the fact that the father/parent-child image is the fundamental relationship and is therefore foundational to the relationship envisioned in the political treaty. The study examines both biblical and extra biblical evidence. The biblical evidence is discussed under two headings. The first is that of explicit textual statements that refer to Israel as Yahweh's child in the Pentateuch (Exod 4:22–23; Num 11:12; Deut 1:31; 8:5; 32:6), which are reinforced by statements in the Prophets. The second line of textual evidence involves implicit parent-child imagery occurring throughout the Pentateuchal narrative. Extra biblical evidence is examined on the basis of the assumption that one would expect an important relationship image to be readily identifiable in the historical and cultural context in which Israel was to fulfill its mandate to be a priest-nation (Exod 19:5–6). Evidence from the nature of ancient Near Eastern political covenants, law, and the culture of the family are analyzed with respect to their support of the likelihood that such a sonship image could be readily detected. Finally the evidence for Israel's sonship is applied to a consideration of the nation's training in character toward the fulfillment of its vocational calling. The sonship image is set forth as a highly functional model of the nature and outworking of Israel's relationship with Yahweh during the period extending from the Exodus to the nation's arrival at Moab.
