Abstract:
Against the consensus view, reviewed in Chapter 1, this thesis argues that there is an ethical aspect to the Priestly (P) concept of holiness. It is contended that this aspect is implicit within the symbolic dimension of P's ritual texts. I propose that these texts were intended to persuade the Israelites to "be holy." For these reasons it is concluded that the concepts of holiness and P and the Holiness Code (Lev. 17-27; H) are possibly more similar than is commonly assumed.
