Creative Editing of Scripture in the Textual History of the Book of Joshua — Biblical studies have shown that many Jewish scribes in the Second Temple Period did not merely copy the Hebrew scriptures but also made creative changes to the texts they transmitted. Even a brief look at the complex textual history of the Book of Joshua illuminates many such creative editorial changes. This article examines three different cases in which an editor-scribe either introduced changes to an existing text or created a new composition based on an older text. The focus is on comparable documented evidence. Thus, the article offers a cross-section of the various sources (MT, LXX, Qumran, Samaritan Joshua) for the textual history of the Book of Joshua.
