Passover and Pss. 113-118

November 6, 2008

It is recorded that “On the evening of the fourteenth day of the month, while camped at Gilgal on the plains of Jericho, the Israelites celebrated the Passover” (Josh. 5:10) and I just wonder if this Spring festival associated with the Exodus-Conquest theme is the Sitz im Leben of the Egyptian Psalter, Pss. 113-118. This question arises after reading F. M. Cross’ Canaanite Myth and Hebrew Epic. If this is the case then what are the implications for the canonical message of the Psalter? Perhaps it would be pertinent to explore the themes associated with this festival?
