Quick Reference


Norwegian OT scholar. His most noteworthy work was on the Psalms. He held that the Psalms which celebrate Yahweh's kingship are parts of the liturgies of a pre-exilic festival in which the enthronement of Yahweh was annually celebrated, and that its themes provided the pattern of the later eschatological hope. He also wrote on the Messianic hope, Ezra-Nehemiah, and the Hexateuch.

Subjects: Christianity.
