Description: In scholarly literature, Nathanís promise (2 Sam 7) is regarded as one of the most important texts for the theology of the Deuteronomistic redactions. Petri Kasari analyses Nathanís promise with the aid of literary- and redaction-critical methods and puts forward a new hypothesis of the transmission history of this text. His useful survey to the related texts helps the reader to better understand how Nathanís promise was reworked and reinterpreted over a long period.
