Selected topics include the Book of Isaiah as Prophetic Torah; the role of Isaiah 65-66 as conclusion of the Book of Isaiah; the interpretation of the Masoretic and Septuagint forms of the book of Jeremiah; Jeremiah 2-6 and 30-31 in relation to Josiah's reform; Ezekiel's role as Zadokite priest and visionary prophet; the problems of theodicy and holiness in Ezekiel 8-11 and 33-39; the interpretation of the Masoretic and Septuagint sequences of the Book of the Twelve; Micah's Debate with Isaiah; Zechariah's Debate with Isaiah; the priestly background of the Book of Daniel; the conceptualization of the war between the Sons of Darkness and the Sons of Light in the War Scroll from Qumran; Rabbi Akiba's journey to Pardes in Talmudic tradition; and others.
