chapter  5
DIVINE COMMAND THEORY IN THE TEXTS OF JEWISH TRADITION
Pages 17

In this chapter I shall examine texts that apparently support versions of DCT or have been claimed to do so. I shall argue that the complex picture that I have drawn in previous chapters of the attitude of classical Jewish texts to DCT/SMU is further complicated by the fact that most of the texts analysed in this chapter do, in fact, support DCT, and indeed endorse as strong a version as ontic command DCT. I shall also argue that the situation has developed somewhat during the course of the history of classical Jewish texts, with greater support for ontic command DCT expressed later in that history. At the end of the chapter (section 5.4), I shall offer some conclusions on the basis of the texts examined thus far in this study.
