it is the purpose of this study to interpret the ideas associated with the Sabbath in the Old Testament in the light of relevant aspects of the culture of the ancient Near East, thus to clarify and relate the several motivations behind the emphasis with which the Sabbath was finally presented in the Hebrew Bible. As informative as it might be, later Jewish Sabbath ideology is specifically excluded from this study.
