Gese makes the point that the Torah given at Sinai was given to one nation and there was an exclusive emphasis on it— a wall of separation was erected between the Holy and the Unholy.
When the covenant was made and the atonement was made, representatives of Israel were allowed to ascend the mountain and eat and drink with God.
The text clearly says that they saw God and were not harmed They had unbroken fellowship with their Creator. It views this communion as a return to the Garden paradise in Eden. At any rate, to return to Gese, he sees the great banquet on Mount Zion at which all the nations have been gathered in Isaiah 25 as the eschatological projection of Sinai.
But now there is a stress on inclusion rather than exclusion as holiness has permeated everything—it has knocked down all barriers. Thus death—the epitome of the unclean and unholy —has been eliminated forever.
Here is the context for the inclusive Zion Torah, which seeks to embrace all cf. Gese develops the idea further in the NT on the Sermon on the Mount, where there is the fulfillment of this Zion Torah in the teaching of Jesus of Nazereth.
He dares to touch the leper, he is touched by the contaminated woman, he touches the dead and raises them. His death brings about the radical cleansing for all on the day of atonement. And He sends his disciples into all the world, for he is its Lord.

I have profited more than I can say from Desi Alexander’s essays, his work on the New Dictionary of Biblical Theology, and especially his books The Servant King and From Paradise to the Promised Land, so I am eager to dive into his latest book, which arrived in my mailbox just moments ago, From Eden [ ].
Description: Biblical theology attempts to explore the theological coherence of the canonical witnesses; no serious Christian theology can overlook this issue. The essays in the present volume illustrate the complexity and richness of the conversation that results from attentive consideration of the question.

When the essay was republished in my From Eden to Golgotha: Essays in Biblical Theology (USF Studies in the History of Judaism, 52; Scholars Press: Atlanta, GA, ), pp. 1–27, I sought to make the language gender-inclusive, and so at this point inserted a definite article. In other citations from my essay I will follow the gender-inclusive.
