The Deed and the Doer in the Bible contains the 1962 Gifford Lectures delivered by David Daube at the University of Edinburgh. In these lectures, Daube explores the nature of the responsibility of individuals for their actions in biblical legal understanding, through such topical questions as causation, intent, negligence, and instigation versus perpetration. Daube makes clear the significance of biblical anthropology to such matters, and attends closely to the uniquely biblical question of God’s role in human action.
