This chapter discusses continuity in Jewish biblical reading. Most biblical interpretations and literature are influenced by the works of Martin Buber and Franz Rosenzweig, particularly the way biblical narrative associates a set of catchwords to the unfolding of the plot. One such example is The King Through Ironic Eyes: Biblical Narrative and the Literary Reading Process by Menakhem Perry and Meir Sternberg, which stirred up protest but engaged biblical exegesis in a new chapter of its history. This literature is a verse-by-verse analysis of the story of David and Bathsheba in the book of Samuel.

Keywords:   Jewish biblical reading, biblical interpretations, exegesis, Martin Buber, Franz Rosenzweig, Menakhem Perry, Meir Sternberg
