Dr. Sandra Richter, formerly Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College, is The Robert H. Gundry Chair of Biblical Studies at Westmont College. Among her many publications are The Deuteronomistic History and the Name Theology (BZAW 2002) and Stewards of Eden: What Scripture Says About the Environment and Why It Matters (IVP 2020). In this podcast, she discusses the importance of Hebrew language in her work, Deuteronomy as an ancient law code, and how parallel texts and a shift of verbs in Deut 22:23-29 illuminate the laws regarding seduction and “rape” in vv. 28-29.
