Warum wir Einwanderung neu regeln müssen

Wohl kaum eine Frage wird heute so heftig debattiert wie die der Einwanderung. Dürfen wir Menschen an der Grenze abweisen und sie wieder in ihre Heimatländer zurückschicken, auch wenn dort Armut und Hunger herrschen? Einwanderungspolitik, schreibt Paul Collier, ist bislang eine Mischung aus viel Emotion und wenig Wissen. In seinem neuen Buch zeigt er, warum es sich lohnt, einen völlig neuen Blick auf die weltweite Migration zu werfen. Wer darf ins Land kommen und wer nicht? Profitieren wir von der Einwanderung – oder hilft der Massenexodus nur den Migranten selbst? Paul Collier erforscht, welche Kosten und welchen Nutzen die weltweite Migration mit sich bringt: für die aufnehmenden Ländern (vor allem Europa und die USA), für die Einwanderer selbst und für jene Länder, die die Migranten zurücklassen. Vor allem diese Staaten, die oft zu den Ländern der „ärmsten Milliarde“ gehören, müssen wir im Blick behalten, so Collier, wenn wir über die Gewinner und Verlierer von Migration sprechen. Nur so wird es möglich sein, neue, gerechte Einwanderungsregeln zu finden, von denen möglichst viele Menschen profitieren und die keiner Gesellschaft schaden.

So resounding is its message that echoes of the Exodus are heard throughout the Old and New Testaments and the present. Exodus names and terms permeate our biblical and liturgical vocabularies: Pharaoh, Moses, Aaron, burning bush, I AM, plagues, Passover, manna, Ten Commandments, forty days and forty nights, Ark of the Covenant. Exodus is, as Mark Smith reminds us, not only an ancient text but also todays story, calling readers to work against oppression and to participate in a covenant relationship with one another and God. With Smith as their experienced guide, readers are able to march through this basic book of the Bible with textual difficulties solved

This is the second volume in a new series, the Historical Commentary on the Old Testament, which devotes explicit attention to the history of interpretation of biblical tradition in all its stages, both within and without the Hebrew canon.

The primacy here is assigned to the final stage of the text. The summary should incite the user to consult the main body of the exegesis which is headed "Scholarly Exposition". scholarship

Das Buch Exodus ist eines der faszinierendsten Bucher der Hebraischen Bibel, geht es hier doch um die grundlegende Befreiung und Verpflichtung Israels, die auch fur die Christen von grosser Bedeutung sind. Der Band ist zugleich ein historisch-kritischer und ein theologischer Kommentar. Rainer Albertz arbeitet den theologischen Gehalt des Exodusbuches heraus, indem er die politischen, sozialen und religiosen Diskurse rekonstruiert, die die Autoren des Exodusbuches zur Entstehung Israels uber einen langen Zeitraum hinweg gefuhrt haben. Dazu wird ein neues Modell fur den Pentateuch vorgestellt und erprobt. Auch Stellung, Aufbau, Entstehung und moglicher historischer Hintergrund des Exodusbuches werden behandelt. Rainer Albertz, Dr. theol., Jahrgang 1943, ist pensionierter Hochschullehrer fur Altes Testament an der Evangelisch-Theologischen Fakultat der Westfalischen Wilhelms-Universitat Munster.

Die Revolution der Alten Welt

Die Geschichte vom Auszug aus Ägypten ist eine der wirkmächtigsten Erzählungen der Menschheit. Sie steht für die Befreiung aus Sklaverei, aber auch für die Erfindung des Glaubens an den einen Gott. Jan Assmann verfolgt die Spuren der Exodus-Erzählung zurück bis ins Alte Ägypten und nach vorne bis ins 20. Jahrhundert. Er entfaltet eine neue Theorie des Monotheismus und zeigt, warum die Geschichte vom Auszug aus Ägypten auch die Gründungserzählung der modernen Welt ist. Das Buch Exodus enthält Schlüsselszenen der Heilsgeschichte, die in Judentum, Christentum und Islam, aber auch in Kunst und Literatur eine vielfältige Wirkung entfaltet haben: von der Fron der Israeliten in Ägypten über die Offenbarung Gottes in einem brennenden Dornbusch, die zehn Plagen, die Stiftung des Passa-Festes und den Durchzug durchs Schilfmeer bis zum Empfang der Zehn Gebote und den Tanz ums Goldene Kalb. Wann sind diese Geschichten entstanden? Welche ägyptischen und altorientalischen Parallelen oder Wurzeln haben sie, und was an ihnen ist radikal anders und neu? Wer hat diese Erzählungen schließlich zusammen mit verschiedenen Gesetzestexten zu dem Buch Exodus, dem Gründungsdokument einer neuen Religion, verbunden? Jan Assmann geht diesen Fragen auf dem neuesten archäologischen und bibelwissenschaftlichen Forschungsstand nach. Er präzisiert seine viel diskutierte Monotheismus-Theorie und erklärt die revolutionären, weltgeschichtlichen Folgen des Auszugs aus Ägypten

" ... The creation and propagation of a critical text of the LXX/OG has been a basic concern in modern scholarship. The two great text editions begun in the early 20th century are the Cambridge Septuagint and the Gt̲tingen Septuagint, each with a 'minor edition' (editio minor) and a 'major edition' (editio maior). For Cambridge this means respectively H.B. Swete, The Old Testament in Greek (1909-1922) and the so-called 'Larger Cambridge Septuagint' by A.E. Brooke, N. McLean, (and H. St. John Thackeray) (1906- ). For Gt̲tingen it denotes respectively Alfred Rahlfs's Handausgabe (1935) and the 'Larger Gt̲tingen Septuagint' (1931- ). Though Rahlfs (editio minor) can be called a semi-critical edition, the Gttingen Septuaginta (editio maior) presents a fully critical text, as described below. While both the Cambridge and Gt̲tingen editions collect and organize textual evidence, they are based on different text-critical approaches. Whereas the Swete-Cambridge edition is 'diplomatic' (see below) the Rahlfs-Gt̲tingen edition is expressly 'critical.' The difference between them did not, however, arise from any theoretical disagreement but, instead, from practical considerations. Whereas in the Cambridge view a critical edition of the LXX/OG was premature, Gt̲tingen judged that its time had come. The Cambridge Septuagint project has since lapsed (1940), but the Gt̲tingen editio maior continues. The central importance of critical editions in modern Septuagint Studies and their continued development is, therefore, not in doubt. Whereas a diplomatic edition uses as its base text a single, 'best' manuscript, to which other textual evidence is collated and organized into an apparatus, a critical text of the LXX/OG may be described as a collection of the oldest recoverable texts, carefully restored book by book (or section by section), aiming at achieving the closest approximation to the original translations (from Hebrew or Aramaic) or compositions (in Greek), systematically reconstructed from the widest array of relevant textual data (including controlled conjecture). The Gt̲tingen Septuagint features two apparatuses (as does the Larger Cambridge Septuagint), the first for LXX/OG textual evidence proper and the second for so-called hexaplaric evidence, i.e. 'rival' translations/revisions of the translated LXX/OG (such as circulated under the labels 'Theodotion, ' 'Aquila, ' and 'Symmachus'), preserved largely through the influence of Origen's Hexapla. For LXX/OG research the importance of both apparatuses is second only to the critical text itself. Though in the nature of the case, the quest for each lost Greek original is without end, it is equally true that responsible research uses such critical texts as its starting point. Similarly, though the Greek original is not claimed to be superior to subsequent text-forms that have been generated (usually by revision of various sorts) in its transmission history, it nevertheless has logical as well as historical priority. It follows from the above that electronic tools aimed at facilitating research on the Septuagintal materials -- whether the LXX/OG as produced and published (the original text) or the LXX/OG as transmitted and received (i.e. its later history) -- ought to make use of the best available critical editions as base text rather than non-critical editions, a practice which would have a regressive effect on scholarship"--The International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies.

Today there are at nine different routes for the Exodus and Red Sea crossing, and over a dozen locations for Mount Sinai. With each route placing the encampments of Israel in different locations. Is something wrong? Yes: they started from the wrong location! They have Israel on the east side of the Nile Delta, but Artapanus (second century B.C.), Philo (20 B.C. - 50 A.D.), Josephus (first century A.D.), Eusebius (263-339 A.D.), and John of Nikiu (seventh century A.D.) all have Moses or the children of Israel on the west side of the Nile. Mount Sinai has been found! Elim has been found! The Graves of lust (Numbers 11:34) have been found! Several catacombs filled with "innumerable" vases of cremated remains! The Egyptians and Arabs did not believe in cremation. The Romans and Greeks, who sometimes cremated, had no towns within 60 miles of these catacombs! Though the Jews did not cremate, one day out on the desert God burned thousands of them (Psalm 78:20-21), and they were buried in "The Graves of lust!" One of the catacombs is pictured in the background.

Taking a pioneering approach to commentary writing, Brevard Childs gives an entirely original treatment to the book of Exodus. Apart from the philological notes and translation, this commentary includes a form-critical section, looking at the growth of the tradition in its previous stages; a consideration of the meaning of the text in its present form; and a consideration of its meaning in its total Old Testament context. The Old Testament Library provides fresh and authoritative treatments of important aspects of Old Testament study through commentaries and general surveys. The contributors are scholars of international standing.
