My research centres around history, politics and rhetoric in the Hebrew Bible. I am especially interested in how the biblical authors’ perception of historical events has affected the composition of the biblical texts and the history portrayed therein. I have published numerous articles exploring a variety of portrayals of people, places and gods including recent articles on the narrative about king Ahab’s death in 1 Kings 22 (ZAW) and the ‘House of Jacob’ in Isaiah 48:1-11 (JBL). My doctoral dissertation focused on the polemic against the Host of Heaven and my current research project is a major study of the portrayals of Benjamin in the Hebrew Bible: ancestor, tribe and territory.
