Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: From Two Kingdoms To One Nation - Israel and Judah
Subtitle: Studies in Division and Unification
Written By: Shamai Gelander
URL: http://www.brill.nl/two-kingdoms-one-nation-israel-and-judah
Series Title: Studia Semitica Neerlandica
Description:

How did two separate peoples become one? All the signs are that the creation
of a unified Israelite kingdom under King David had failed to erase the
differences between the Northern and Southern tribes. This book sets out to
highlight these essential differences between Judah and Israel as they appear in
various parts of biblical literature. Each of the four chapters of the book focuses
on a different aspect of evidence. The first studies the prophet narratives, to
elicit the differences between Northern and Southern prophets. The second
chapter examines the differences between the Jacob narratives, which are
based on mostly Northern traditions, and the Abraham narratives. The third
chapter deals with the evidence of traditions: the Exodus tradition, which is
essentially Northern, versus that of Zion and the House of David. The final
chapter relates the reunification to the initiative of King Hezekiah
