About:
Shmuel Vargon is a full Professor of Bible Studies at Bar-Ilan University, Ramat-Gan. He was born in Tel-Aviv in 1940 and received the major part of his professional training at Bar-Ilan. For a period of eleven years he served as Head of the Bible Department in rotation. He has been a Visiting Professor of Bible Studies at the Bernard Revel Graduate School and Stern College, Yeshiva University, New York, and at Jews’ College, affiliated to the University of London. He has published several studies on Biblical Historical Geography and Historiography and the Eighth Century BCE Prophets. In the latter field his book The Book of Micah: A Study and Commentary was published by Bar-Ilan University Press in 1994, and a year later this commentary on Micah appeared in an updated and reworked form in the Minor Prophets, II volume of the World of the Bible Encyclopedia. His researches on the Book of Isaiah are concerned with a literary and historical analysis of the various prophecies contained in the book, with the aim of illuminating the prophet`s statements against the background of the period and its history. A further area of interest is Nineteenth Century Jewish Bible Commentary. In this context he published a number of studies on the critical and complex approach of Samuel David Luzzatto (Shadal) in his commentaries on the Bible. Professor Vargon also turned his hand to other fields that engaged him: research into the way in which Biblical narrative is fashioned, such as an article discussing the cripples motif in the David stories; an analysis of Ps. 128; an examination of the symbolic significance of hair in the Biblical narrative and in law; etc.
