Abstract

GILEAD AND GILGAL: SOME REFLECTIONS ON THE ISRAELITE OCCUPATION OF PALESTINE BY JOHN MAUCHLIN'E Glasgow A. INTRODUCTORY: THE SIX-TRIBE LEAH GROUP There are various passages in the Pentateuch and in the Former Prophets, and, to some extent, in the Latter Prophets, which leave the reader with the definite impression that the territories east of the Jordan played a much more important part in the history of Israel in the pre-monarchic period than is commonly admitted. The shape of political institutions as they eventually developed and of political relations as they became defined in united Israel induced, possibly inevitably, a tendentious modification of the traditions of pre-monarchic days, even if hints remain to illumine the nature of the situation as it really was. It is the purpose of this paper to coordinate these hints and to examine afresh and to correlate all the available evidence in order to discern, if possible, the impor- tance of Gilead and Gilgal in Israel's early history, and to determine the part played by Reuben, Gad and Manasseh, it being kept in mind that Reuben is on record as the eldest son of the Leah family of Jacob, that Gad was a member of
