God's Covenants w/ Israel
Offices of prophet, priest, king
Priest (Ex 28-29) – chosen by God as dynasty, clearly specified by law (enforced by whom?); no govt functions
King (Dt 17) – chosen by God, to be set up by people later (becomes dynasty under Davidic covenant) w/ restrictions on race, military power, wives, wealth
Period of Judges suggests some ambivalence re/ form of government.
