Benedikt Hensel’s article discusses the different questions about the identification of redactor groups and social groups behind the biblical traditions in the so-called formative phase of Judaism. Here, I identify and detail two modes of representation of the different Yahwistic and especially Diaspora groups. This results in the observation that the different traditions and social groups behind the biblical texts establish differing concepts of a “biblical Israel” under the question of who does and who does not (anymore) belong. The formation of the biblical traditions thus comprises the counterpart to the historical processes of the formation of Judaism within the “canon” of the various Yahwistic groups.
