The Holiness Code stresses that the people of the covenant needed to "be qādôsh, for I the LORD your God am qādôsh" (Leviticus 19:2). In other words, Israel was expected to be made up of individuals who moved others toward ________.
the divine state, as God Himself did
Of the three legal codes that make up "the law of Moses"—the Covenant Code, the Holiness Code, and the Deuteronomic Code—which one is aware of the two previous codes and actively updates and revises earlier precepts?
The Deuteronomic Code
Some unique features of the Deuteronomic Code include ________.
an assumption that people are living in an urban setting, instructions for rule by kings, and an emphasis on worshipping only in one designated place
The Deuteronomic Code contains some injunctions to completely annihilate certain non-Israelite communities. These extreme instructions can be very troubling and difficult for us to understand as modern readers. However, based on other principles outlined in the text, as well as archaeological evidence, it is possible that these instructions ________.
represent a later addition to the original text; or, alternatively, represent a cosmology presenting an ideal for the world rather than instructions about what to do in the actual world
The law codes known as the Covenant Code, the Holiness Code, and the Deuteronomic Code—as well as bits and pieces of further legal instruction found in books like Numbers—were eventually collected and edited together into the biblical books we have today (the word redaction that Dr. Belnap uses means "editing"). With the passage of time, the Jews came to view this collection as a singular "law" that was authored entirely by Moses. While the timing of this process is uncertain, we have a few historical benchmarks to go by. Which of the following are those benchmarks?
The reconciliation of these different traditions began before the Babylonian exile (ca. 600 BC); by 400-350 BC these legal texts were known as "the law of Moses"; and by ca. 280 BC the arrangement of the texts into the books Exodus, Numbers, Leviticus, and Deuteronomy had become a "canon."

John 7-9 is set during the Feast of Tabernacles. What historical event does this holiday celebrate? What traditions do Jews observe during this week?
The Feast of Tabernacles celebrates the Israelites' time wandering in the wilderness after leaving Egypt. They celebrate by making temporary dwellings out of palm branches and waving palm branches as signs of rejoicing.
On the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles, Jesus stood up and declared, "If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water" (John 7:37-38). (The King James Version's "belly" is a literal translation of Greek koilia "bowels"/"intestines," but the organ you associate with emotions is culture specific, so in our culture you would use "heart" to communicate this idea.) Why would this image of Jesus as the source of "living water" have been particularly impactful to Jesus's audience during the Feast of Tabernacles?
During the Feast of Tabernacles, the Jews prayed for rain to bless them with physical life the coming year, so the need for life-giving water was very much on their minds.
After quoting Jesus's declaration that those who believe on Him will experience "rivers of living water" flowing out of their hearts, John the narrator explains that Jesus was using "living water" as a symbol for what?
