"Don't Stop Me Now!": Ex. 32:10 and YHWH's Intention to Destroy His Own People

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Ex. 32:10 has challenged many exegetes, and many tried to soften the apparent message of the verse. The author pleads for a 'radical exegetical approach that takes the text at face value. That means:
• God did not expect Moses to intervene, and certainly did not invite him to do so.
• God does change his plans, does react to Moses’ argumentation, has to be
remembered of his promises, is sometimes whimsical, and has to be cooled down.
• If these results clash with our systematic theology, that problem should be solved within the systematic theology, not by adapting the exegesis.
• The reason for the author(s) writing this kind of text (a guess): this is the way they experienced God, and this was a way of dealing with that God, besides submission.
