Much shorter than NIDOTTE for example, Richards often provides much better material. Compare NIDOTTE and Richards on "knowledge" (yada')---Richards packs more biblically-derived insight into one page than NIDOTTE does in five. Instead of chasing the goose through reams of disconnected data, Richards bags it. Consider the following quote from Richards on "knowledge":
"When Moses first confronted Pharaoh with God's demand to let Israel go, the Egyptian snorted in derision: 'Who is the Lord, that I should obey him and let Israel go? I do not know the Lord and I will not let Israel go' (Ex 5:2). In a series of divine judgements, Pharaoh and the Egyptians experienced God's power. Reluctantly Pharaoh released Israel, only to change his mind. He sent his army to compel his slaves to return. But at the Red Sea, God announced that he would destory the Egyptian army: 'The Egyptians will know that I am the Lord when I gain glory through Pharaoh, his chariots and his horsemen' (Ex 14:18).
Here we see a significant interplay of the factors involved in knowing. Pharaoh had no acquaintance with the Lord. Thus Yahweh played no part in his thinking or planning. Yahweh's acts provided the king with a direct experience of his power. Now Pharaoh was forced to revise his view of the world and take God into account. But Pharaoh would not accept a universe in which Yahew was the ultimate reality.Read more ›
