"Whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my hase to meet me." Jephthah and His Vow in the Jewish and Christian Interpretations
Baudiš, Adam ; Nosek, Bedřich (advisor) ; Šedinová, Jiřina (referee) ; Prudký, Martin (referee)
"Whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me." Jephthah and His Vow in the Jewish and Christian Interpretations Mgr. Adam Baudiš Abstract Main theme of this thesis is the story of Jephthah from Judg 10:6-12:7 and its interpretations. Thesis is divided into four main parts. The first part deals with the story of Jephthah in the Bible and mainly from the perspective of biblical theology. The second chapter is focused on research of the rabbinic literature perspective and the third chapter puts the whole story into the contexts of Near East and other texts of Tanakh dealing with human sacrifice. The final chapter focuses on the biblical commentaries and their interpretation approaches. The main differences in the approach of Judaism and Christianity in this case are mainly the evaluation of Jephthah as a character, focus of the commentaries and general results of the commentatries. On the contrary, they mostly agree on the tendency to interpret the story as a sacrifice. These differences are based primarily in the different focuses of these two religions and their approach to the biblical text.
Perspectives of Feminist Theology in Biblical Studies: Hagar
Kajová, Katarína ; Prudký, Martin (advisor) ; Rückl, Jan (referee)
Kajová, Katarína Abstract This work offers a probe into the exegetical research of selected feminist biblical studies, which have been developing in recent decades as a part of various forms of the feminist movement. On the example of a specific text, the work shows that different contexts can make the reader, the interpreter, and thus the interpretation, more sensitive to certain social phenomena, which are to be found both in the text and in their own world. The chosen biblical text is the story of Hagar from Gen 16, 1-16 and Gen 21, 9-21, whose exegesis is given by selected feminist biblical scholars Phyllis Trible and Dora Rudo Mbuwayesango. Both authors come from different backgrounds, and the work shows how these environments are reflected in their understanding of feminism and in their own exegetical work. Just as the feminist movement has various forms and submovements, so do the feminist biblical studies. Their choice of emphasis and sensitivity to specific topics depends on their own context and environment.
A man of God, an old prophet, and the word of the LORD against the altar in Bethel
Chaloupka, Libor ; Prudký, Martin (advisor) ; Ber, Viktor (referee) ; Chalupa, Petr (referee)
The dissertation deals with an interpretation of 1 Kgs 13 in its immediate and broader literary context, namely from standpoint of the main theme of this story. That is a crying of a man of God from Judah "by the word of the Lord" against the altar at Bethel, that Jeroboam has made. In this context there is given a new look at the identity of this altar as a new building, by which Jeroboam's cultic reforms and establishment of a new cult culminated. This matter is evaluated in the conclusion of this story of the crying against the altar in 2 Kgs 23,15-20. In the light of the main theme there are worked up and evaluated further figures and their roles: a man of God from Judah and an old prophet from Bethel. Their figures and prophetic confrontation are inquired from the standpoint of validity (irreversibility) and dynamism of Lord's word proclaimed against the altar. The dissertation reflects relationship between an addressee of proclaiming Lord's word (altar) and that, who proclaims Lord's word against altar (man of God). The man of God, that obediently has proclaimed Lord's word against altar but disobeyed the same word concerning a way of its proclaiming, get under Lord's judgment as the altar in Bethel. Thus the story demonstrates that in Lord's word service a precise obedience of the word holds. The...
The Mesha Stele: The Translation and Analysis of an Epigraphic Text
Klimešová, Michaela ; Prudký, Martin (advisor) ; Čapek, Filip (referee)
This thesis introduces Mesha stele to Czech audience. The most important task was a translation of the original text into Czech and accompaning concise commentary. There are a few rewrites of several authors, which were exploited for the translation. The fundamental text is taken from Gibson. The Smelik's version was a pattern for partitioning of the text. With literary analysis, an emphasis was put on an analysis of expressions as well as comparison various parts of the texts and temporary customs as well. The stele is writen in specific temporal and local dialect, and therefore a comparison of the Mesha stele with other inscriptions of that era was quite rewarding. Separate chapter deals with topography, which is hard to be grasped. Reader might appreciate a matching of ancient and modern places on a few maps and charts. Very important part of this work is a comparison of the Mesha stele and the text from 2 Kings 3 citing Mesha, the king of Moab, who fought with the kings of Izrael, Judah, and Edom. Old Testament devotes quite long chapter to this ruler. For the completeness, there are also circumstances of the inscription's discovering. It is very bizzare because the stele was not found by controlled archeological explorations. It was even destructed and the way to its renovation was very complicated and...
"Abomination" of the Service to Other Gods
Hurtová, Debora ; Prudký, Martin (advisor) ; Čapek, Filip (referee)
The main goal of the first part is to elaborate properly the term "abomination". In the beginning it focuses generally on this topic - which verb is the term derived from, where does the term appear and in what kind of meanings. Next it pays attention to the occurences and meanings of the term in individual parts of the Old Testament: firstly in the book of Deuteronomy, the particularly in chapter 13, in the deuteronomistic literature, in the Prophets and till the end in the Proverbs. Second part is orientated on exegesis of chapter 13. The thesis proceeds clasical exegetical way of doing exegesis. The exegesis starts with own translation of chapter 13, working on a critical apparatus and lection. The thesis also contains a synopsis of the whole chapter and a language analysis of the text. Next parts of the exegesis contain a designation of the litarary form and a designation of the kind of the text. Categorization of the text into the historical, literary and canonical kontext and the description of the functions of this chapter in a wider literary context follows. After that the exegesis of component verses and gaining from the commentaries comes. Yet in the final part the comparism of chapter 17 and chapter 13 is compiled. The whole thesis closes up with the conclusion in which the results of the...
Johannes Hempel in his works till 1945
Kovács, Kristián ; Prudký, Martin (advisor) ; Čapek, Filip (referee)
I am trying to summarize life and theological work of Johannes Hempel till 1945. He was interested in special topics of Ethics of ancient Israel and Questions of profetic literature. By my research I was trying to include life and work of Johannes Hempel in his era and teological schools, define his work and compare it with other Old Testament scholars of his era. With reference to political situation of contemporar Germany (NS Regime) I prefer to accent Hempel's political ideas and engagement. At the end of my work I was trying to reflect validity and applicability of Hempel's concepts in relation with the newest research of Old Testament. Powered by TCPDF (
Possible Interpretations of the Designations of God in Ex 3
Kramolišová, Emilie ; Prudký, Martin (advisor) ; Čapek, Filip (referee)
This master's thesis explores the relationship between the strikingly frequent designations of God (concentrated in the so called self-representation formula in Ex 3:15) in the narrative text of Exodus 3. The traditionally attractive topic of this formula (the interpretation of the tetragrammaton of hwhy) takes into consideration another similarly mysterious expression of hyha rva hyha (Ex 3:14a). The interpretation of both wordplays based on grammar surpasses the inclusion of Ex 3:13-15 delimited by the usage of the term ~v and turns back to the assurance &m[ hyha-yk (Ex 3:12). This thesis explores the interpretation of an often neglected formula of "God of fathers" affiliated with the formula of the triad of fathers bq[yw qxcy ~hrba yhla juxtaposed to the tetragrammaton of hwhy in Ex 3:15. An unsubstitutable interpretational potential of both formulas for the whole narrative of Ex 3 is testified by their significance in the Book of Genesis which is cohesive from the point of view of both form and content. The significance of the Name of God is interpreted by the direct confrontation of the traditional interpretational method based on grammatically-justified predictors of the content of hwhy with the interpretational method in the intention of the formula of "God of fathers".

An outline of numerical functions in Tanak
Klíma, Lukáš ; Prudký, Martin (advisor) ; Sláma, Petr (referee)
This essay deals with the function of the numerical relations within the Hebrew Bible(Tanak). It proceeds on three levels. The first level presents the formative function of numbers, which by means of of gematria influences the shape of proper names and numerical data. The second level is concerned with the compositional function of numbers, important for the formal aspect of poetic texts in particular. Any numerical datum is carrying out this function through deliberate number of forming elements (i.e. sections, words and letters). The third level focuses on the kerygmatic function of numbers, opperative by commonly shared symbolism and illustrated by several historiographic and apocalyptic texts. The numerical symbols reflect the quality of objects they relate to and, at the same time, they contextulize them within Biblical canon. Powered by TCPDF (
Faith inspired by living creation according to Psalm 104
Čmelík, Pavel ; Prudký, Martin (advisor) ; Sláma, Petr (referee)
Faith inspired by living creation according to Psalm 104, Bless the LORD, O my soul! This work is concerned with the structure of Psalm 104, in various ways partition of Psalm's motives by various authors. It is aimed at analyzing of translations of selected parts, which are concerned with living creation. is concerned with variants of translation of some Hebrew (Greek and Latin) terms of animals (ibex, daman) in Czech. It compares the Psalm 104 with Egyptian Hymn to the Sun and other similar creation texts in the Old Testament. In the Old Testament is among the texts at first creation's report in Gn 1, others creations Psalms (Ps 8, Ps 19 and Ps 146) and 38-41 chapter of Job. Through many thematic similarities and disimilarities in ideas, it looks like very significant differences in the form of the texts presentations. While Psalm 104 is a praise of God in personal relationship to the God, the report of creation in Gn 1 is unpersonal story abote the God and in case of Jb 38-41 is a preaching speech of God to man. At more deeply meditation over the Psalm 104 and other similar texts, which arn't ment in more detail, is noticeable similarity of Psalm 104 with the report of the Flood in Gn 7-9 and analogical ancient myths in Mesopotamia. Also, this work is interested in a question of mythical,...
LORD IS A KING. Old Testament metaphor from the perspective of cognitive linguistics: Cognitive-linguistic and translatological interpretation.
Procházková, Ivana ; Prudký, Martin (advisor) ; Sláma, Petr (referee) ; Karlík, Petr (referee)
This disertation uses methods of culturally-oriented and cognitive linguistics to describe the meaning of the Old Testament metaphor "God-King". The disertation follows up on the work of G. Lakoff, J. Johnson, M. Turner, G. Fauconnier, as well as the work of Czech cognitive linguistics (in particular, I. Vaňková). The author applies the theory of conceptual metaphor, the theory of mental spaces, the theory of conceptual integration, and some theories of cognitive semantics (for example, the theory of stereotype/prototype), to Old Testament texts. The author describes the meaning of the metaphors God, the shepherd, God, the warior, God, the lion, and God, the eagle in the Psalms as being partial expositions of the King metaphor. The metaphorical meaning is described by means of generic narrative structures abbreviated by the letters GPS in Czech) These are abstract narrative structures, which the author has isolated in the texts. They are source domains (shepherding, war, lion and eagle), and they repeatedly participate in the structuralization or metaphorical formulations. The methods of culturally-oriented and cognitive linguistics are also used to analyze and interpret Psalm 44, Psalm 76 and Lamentations 3:1-24. In the last section of the disertation, functionally conceived translations follow up...
