dc.description.abstractThe present study will address three responses to the visibility or invisibility of God found within the Hebrew Scriptures. Chapter one will introduce the problem, including a survey of passages in which individuals see God, passages which state that he cannot be seen, a few previous solutions to the dilemma and an explanation of my approach. Chapter two will summarize recent scholarship on the composition of the Hebrew Scriptures. Chapter three will focus on Deuteronomistic šem ("Name") theology, in which he cannot be seen. Chapter four will address God's appearance as kabôd ("Glory") in Priestly literature. Finally, chapter five will take up the problem of mal'ak yhwh ("messenger of Yahweh"), a figure who sometimes seems to be yhwh himself in anthropomorphic form, though the current narrative reflects theologically motivated editing to disguise the appearance of Yahweh to humans.
