Abstract While Eduard Nielsen almost sixty years ago placed the Shechem traditions in a pre-exilic contexts as evidence of a competition between Jerusalem and Shechem with roots in the pre-monarchical period, recent studies have shown that it is better to see this animosity in an early Hellenistic context between the two growing religious centers of the central highlands in Shechem and Jerusalem. However, the method of close reading found in Eduard Nielsen’s study as representative of the Uppsala school of Old Testament Studies has, still in this new context, much to offer for our understanding of the Shechem-Jerusalem traditions in the Old Testament.
