While an individual referring to themselves in the third person may sound unusual, this phenomenon (known as illeism) is consistently and extensively reflected in the direct speech of both Jesus and Yahweh. This in turn raises various questions: why are Jesus and Yahweh presented as speaking in such a manner? Who else employs illeism in the Bible? Does it occur in the Ancient Near Eastern texts and, if so, who utilises it? And lastly, is there a relationship between the illeism as used by Yahweh, and the illeism as used by Jesus? Elledge addresses an issue in Biblical texts often neglected by scholarship: conducting an extensive survey of the use of illeism in the Bible and the Ancient Near Eastern texts, and preservin evidence that his phenomenon, as used by Jesus, reflects both royal and divine themes that are apparent across several different religions and cultures. Through Elledge's examinations of illeism in Classical Antiquity, Ancient Near Eastern Texts and the Old and New Testament, this book provides a fresh perspective on the divine use of the third person, contributing substantial analysis ot the ongoing discussion of Jesus' divinity and self-understanding.
