Abstract

Using the law of Moses’ stipulation that Israelite soldiers be at least twenty years old, Tvedtnes examines the circumstances and time frame surrounding the people of Ammon, their oath, and their sons’ appearance as valiant soldiers. Concludes that it is highly probable that the stripling warriors were between 21 and 26.
