Summary
In this comparative law analysis, Dylan R. Johnson examines how scribes in the Bible and the ancient Near East defined the concepts of sovereignty without a self-reflective legal doctrine. The author outlines how to read the divine law of the Hebrew Bible as part of the broader cultural background of the ancient Near East.
