1.2.1.1 Genesis

Almond, Philip C.
Adam & Eve in Seventeenth-Century Thought
This book offers a fascinating account of the central myth of Western culture - the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Philip Almond examines the way in which the gaps, hints and illusions within this biblical story were filled out in seventeenth-century English thought. At this time, the Bible formed a fundamental basis for studies in all subjects, and influenced greatly the way that people understood the world. Drawing extensively on primary sources he covers subjects as diverse as theology, history, philosophy, botany, language, anthropology, geology, vegetarianism, and women. He demonstrates the way in which the story of Adam and Eve was the fulcrum around which moved lively discussions on topics such as the place and nature of Paradise, the date of creation, the nature of Adamic language, the origins of the American Indians, agrarian communism, and the necessity and meaning of love, labour and marriage.

Arndt, Emily
Demanding Our Attention. The Hebrew Bible as a Source for Christian Ethics
What can we possibly learn about our relationships to others from reading the story of an ancient father who raised a knife to slaughter his beloved only son? Contemporary Christian ethicists, faced with such dilemmas, are often tempted to treat the Hebrew Bible in a limited, distanced, and even dismissive way. Yet Emily Arndt here argues that ancient scriptures can be a vital resource for Christian ethical studies today. Focusing on a close analysis of the akedah the story of Abrahams near-sacrifice of Isaac she demonstrates the power of even the most troubling and uncomfortable Old Testament narratives to teach valuable ethical lessons. Placing ourselves in relationship to such complex, perhaps un-resolvable, and always challenging sacred texts, she says, is in itself a practice that can help us learn to relate authentically and ethically to others. This is a fully formed, sophisticated, and beautifully written book, offering an important contribution to the field of theological ethics.

Interpreting Abraham: Journeys to Moriah
The text presents a collection of essays that reflect upon the narrative of God's command to Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac in Genesis 22. It explores various readings of Abraham and the Akedah story throughout history, including traditional, modern, and postmodern readings, as well as through Jewish, Christian, and Islamic lenses.

The book demonstrates the diversity of interpretations, and the dramatic impact of the story on the Western intellectual tradition.

Blenkinsopp, Joseph
Abraham: The Story of a Life
In this discursive commentary Joseph Blenkinsopp explores the story of Abraham, iconic ancestor of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, as told in Genesis 11-25. Presented in continuous discussion rather than in verse-by-verse form, Blenkinsopp's commentary focuses on the literary and theological artistry of the narrative as a whole.

Blenkinsopp discussses a range of issues raised in the Abraham saga, including confirmation of God's promises, Isaac's sacrifice and the death of Jesus, and Abraham's other beloved son, Ishmael. Each chapter has a section called 'Filling in the Gaps', which probes some of the vast amount of Jewish, Christian, and Islamic commentary that the basic Genesis text has generated through the ages.

In an epilogue Blenkinsopp looks at Abraham in early Christianity and expresses his own views, as a Christian, on Abraham. Readers of Blenkinsopp's Abraham: The Story of a Life will surely come away with a deeper, richer understanding of this seminal ancient figure.

Blyth, C.
The Narrative of Rape in Genesis 34. Interpreting Dinahs Silence
This innovative study explores the interconnectedness of ancient and current attitudes towards sexual violence, focusing upon the representation of rape in the biblical narrative of Genesis 34. Caroline Blyth takes the reader on a journey through both biblical and contemporary cultures, contemplating the commonality and diversity of rape survivors' experiences across space and time. In particular, Blyth evaluates the insidious and pervasive influences of the cultural myths and misperceptions surrounding sexual violence, which have long served to deny rape survivors a voice with which to relate their narrative of suffering. Blyth examines whether such 'rape myths' are likewise given voice within the biblical text of Genesis 34, where we encounter Dinah, a voiceless literary victim of sexual violence. When these myths do appear to be represented within the narrative, consideration is then given to the ways in which they may have shaped Dinah's literary experience of sexual violation and furthermore, contributed to her narrative silence. Appealing to the witness of contemporary rape survivors whose own testimonies of their experiences have been affected by such rape myths, Blyth attempts to grant Dinah a literary voice with which to share her story. The Narrative of Rape in Genesis 34 provides a deeper insight into Dinah's literary silence within the narrative, in order that contemporary readers can better comprehend its significance and complexity.

Genesis
Van 38.50 voor 32.50

De-centering the predominant first-world orientation of past biblical scholarship, the Texts and Contexts series presents cutting-edge scholarship on select books of the Bible from authors writing from a rich array of social, cultural, and ethnic locations, all participants in the Society of Biblical Literature's Contextual Biblical Interpretation Section. The result is a series of dazzlingly new and thought-provoking readings that foreground the perspectives and commitments of the interpreters as well as issues of identity, ethnicity, gender, class, location, and power, offered for a diverse and increasingly globalized world. Genesis foregrounds cultural readings of subjects including ancestry and immigration, dreams and naming, Diaspora and exile, leadership and land, feuds and godliness.

Groote, L. A. de
Stethoscoop op Genesis
Dit boek is het resultaat van nauwkeurig lezen van de verhalen in het eerste bijbelboek. De basis ervan is wat als de meest betrouwbare tekst gezien wordt, namelijk de Hebreeuwse tekst zoals die verschenen is in de Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia.

Deze tekst wordt in een vertaling weergegeven die nogal onbeholpen lijkt. De bedoeling van dit 'Neder-Hebreeuws' is uitleg te geven over verschillende woorden en uitdrukkingen, waarvan de betekenis in een goedlopende vertaling verloren zou gaan. Er zijn de laatste jaren verschillende vertalingen verschenen, maar een vertaling met verklaringen ontbreekt tot dusver. De kanttekeningen in dit boek zijn samengesteld uit diverse bronnen, zowel taalkundig als exegetisch, en deze worden aangevuld met eigen opvattingen van de auteur.

Het boek als zodanig is met name bruikbaar als naslagwerk, maar naast de vertaling met commentaar vindt men in dit boek een aantal verhalen die grotendeels origineel werk van de auteur zijn. Vanzelfsprekend zijn niet alle gedachten hierin absoluut geldend. De verhalen zijn vooral bedoeld om de lezer onbevangen een eigen mening te laten vormen over deze verhalen.

Lukas A. de Groote(1943) is huisarts van beroep en als hobby beoefent hij het oudtestamentisch Hebreeuws. Vanuit zijn professie heeft hij geleerd nauwgezet te kijken en te luisteren. Zo probeert hij met name onder het oppervlak van de huid, de tekst te doorgronden wat daar verborgen is. Fijngevoeligheid voor nuances en argwaan ten aanzien van het oppervlakkige, kenmerkt het omgaan met de mensen. Zo gaat hij ook om met de bijbeltekst.

Hamilton, V.P.
The Book of Genesis 1-17
In the Old Testament we read Gods word as it was spoken to his people Israel. Today, thousands of years later, we hear in these thirty-nine books his inspired and authoritative message for us. These twin convictions, shared by all of the contributors to "The New International Commentary on the Old Testament," define the goal of this ambitious series of commentaries. For those many modern readers who find the Old Testament to be strange and foreign soil, the NICOT series serves as an authoritative guide bridging the cultural gap between today s world and the world of ancient Israel. Each NICOT volume aims to help us hear God s word as clearly as possible.Scholars, pastors, and serious Bible students will welcome the fresh light that this commentary series casts on ancient yet familiar biblical texts. The contributors apply their proven scholarly expertise and wide experience as teachers to illumine our understanding of the Old Testament. As gifted writers, they present the results of the best recent research in an interesting manner.Each commentary opens with an introduction to the biblical book, looking especially at questions concerning its background, authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology. A select bibliography also points readers to resources for their own study. The author s own translation from the original Hebrew forms the basis of the commentary proper. Verse-by-verse comments nicely balance in-depth discussions of technical matters -- textual criticism, critical problems, and so on -- with exposition of the biblical writer s theology and its implications for the life of faith today.

Hamilton,V.P.
The Book of Genesis 18-50
The second of Victor P. Hamilton's two-volume study of Genesis for the NICOT series, this prodigious and scholarly work provides linguistic, literary, and theological commentary on Genesis 18-50. Beginning with Abraham's reception of the three visitors and his intercession before Yahweh on behalf of Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen. 18) and continuing through the end of the Joseph story (Gen. 50), the overarching theme of Hamilton's commentary is Yahweh's faithfulness to his promised word and his covenant commitments to those whom he has chosen to receive that promised word. Special features of this commentary include its serious attention to important matters of biblical translation from the Hebrew language into English, copious footnotes that direct readers to further and more extensive sources of information, and frequent references to the New Testament writers' reading of Genesis. Hamilton's work will greatly benefit scholars, seminarians, and pastors who seek solid exegesis of the Bible's foundational book.

Essays by ten eminent scholars cover the perspectives of literature, gender, memory, sources, theology, and the reception of Genesis in Judaism and Christianity. Each contribution addresses the history and rationale of the method, insightfully explores particular texts of Genesis, and deepens the interpretive gain of the method in question. These ways of reading Genesis, which include its classic past readings, map out a pluralistic model for understanding Genesis in - and for - the modern age.

Hendel. Ronald
The Book of Genesis. A Biography
During its 2,500-year life, the book of Genesis has been the keystone to almost every important claim about reality, humanity, and God in Judaism and Christianity. And it continues to play a central role in debates about science, politics, and human rights. With clarity and skill, acclaimed biblical scholar Ronald Hendel provides a panoramic history of this iconic book, exploring its impact on Western religion, philosophy, science, politics, literature, and more. Hendel traces how Genesis has shaped views of reality, and how changing views of reality have shaped interpretations of Genesis. Literal and figurative readings have long competed with each other. Hendel tells how Luther's criticisms of traditional figurative accounts of Genesis undermined the Catholic Church; how Galileo made the radical argument that the cosmology of Genesis wasn't scientific evidence; and how Spinoza made the equally radical argument that the scientific method should be applied to Genesis itself. Indeed, Hendel shows how many high points of Western thought and art have taken the form of encounters with Genesis - from Paul and Augustine to Darwin, Emily Dickinson, and Kafka. From debates about slavery, gender, and sexuality to the struggles over creationism and evolution, "Genesis" has shaped our world and continues to do so today. This wide-ranging account tells the remarkable story of the life of "Genesis" like no other book.

Wandelen in de Schrift. Genesis
Dit boek is een bijbeluitleg voor mensen die nieuwsgierig zijn naar de bijbel en meer willen weten over de achtergronden bij de Genesis-verhalen. Zich baserend op zowel joodse als christelijke uitlegtradities, benaderen de auteurs dit bijbelboek vooral als een poetisch geschrift. In heldere taal laten ze de stijlkenmerken in de tekst zien en maken ze diepere lagen van het verhaal zichtbaar. Veelvoorkomende woorden krijgen extra aandacht. Bijvoorbeeld scheppen, "dat is scheiden, ordenen, begrenzen", zo leggen ze uit. De auteurs geven systematisch aan in welke context en rijmschema's de kernwoorden voorkomen en maken de literaire kracht ervan duidelijk.

Het boek is heel geschikt als gids bij bijbelstudie, zowel individueel als in groepen. Voorkennis is niet vereist.

Kraus, H.
Gender Issues in Ancient and Reformation Translations of Genesis 1-4
This book deals with Bible translation and its development from Antiquity to the Reformation. Helen Kraus compares and analyses those translated passages in Genesis 1-4 that deal with the male-female dynamic, tracing linguistic and ideological processes and seeking to determine the extent of interaction between contemporary culture and translation. In response to the challenge of late 20th-century 'second wave' feminist scholarship, Kraus considers the degree and development of androcentricity in these passages in both Hebrew and translated texts. The study is therefore something of a hybrid, comprising exegesis, literary criticism and reception history, and draws together a number of hitherto discrete approaches. After an introduction to the problems of translation, and exegesis of the Hebrew text, five translations are examined: The Septuagint (the first Greek translation, thought to date from the 3rd century BCE), Jerome's 4th-century CE Latin Vulgate version, Luther's pioneering German vernacular Bible of 1523, the English Authorized Version (1611), and the Dutch State Bible (1637). A brief study of contemporary culture precedes each exegetical section that compares translation with the Hebrew text. Results of the investigation point to the Hebrew text showing significant androcentricity, with the Septuagint, possibly influenced by Greek philosophy, emphasizing the patriarchal elements. This trend persists through the Vulgate and even Luther's Bible - though less so in the English and Dutch versions - and suggests that the translators are at least partly responsible for an androcentric text becoming the justification for the oppression of women

Kugel, James L.
In Potiphar's house: The interpertive life of biblical texts
In this study of early biblical interpretation, James Kugel examines a series of exegetical stories that elaborate on the Joseph narrative in Genesis. These stories - which appear in such diverse sources as rabbinic midrash, early Christian writings, liturgical poetry, and the Qur'an - often contain details of whole incidents not found in the Bible itself. In tracing the development and function of these tales, Kugel reveals a dynamic interpretive process: the living, changing significance of texts through generations of discussion, analysis and application.

Kvam, Kristen E., Linda S. Schearing , Valerie H. Ziegler (eds)
Eve & Adam. Jewish, Christian & Muslim readings on Genesis & Gender
No other text has affected women in the western world as much as the story of "Eve and Adam". The story has engendered countless commentaries, has been used to argue the 'fallen' nature of humankind or to explain or exploit relations between the sexes, and has played a key role in justifying the ways of God toward man and woman.

This remarkable anthology surveys more than 2000 years of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim commentary on the biblical story that continues to raise fundamental questions about what it means to be a man or to be a woman. The selections range widely from early post biblical interpretations in the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha to three commentaries written especially for this volume. The editors have included early rabbinic texts, interpretations from the New Testament, and commentaries from the Church Fathers. There are excerpts from the Quran, from medieval Jewish commentaries, from Thomas Aquinas and other later figures, as well as representative texts of the Protestant Reformation. One section focuses on nineteenth-century America and the antebellum debate on slavery, the struggle for women's equality, and new religious movements such as Shakerism and Christian Science. Twentieth century texts from all three traditions conclude the volume. A special appendix focuses on race and Genesis 1-3 at the turn of the new millennium.

The tale told through these texts is a remarkable one of the hold the story of "Eve and Adam" has had on the western imagination. The editors note that though the biblical account has been invoked throughout history to justify all manner of oppression, there is an equally rich tradition of egalitarian interpretation, well-represented in this book. These texts are lively representatives of a debate that continues to animate men and women to this day.

Inheriting Abraham boldly challenges this view, demonstrating Abraham's distinctive role in each tradition, while delineating the points of connection as well.

Genesis and Christian Theology contributes significantly to the renewed convergence of biblical studies and systematic theology -- two disciplines whose relational disconnect has adversely affected not only the academy but also the church as a whole. In this book twenty-one noted scholars consider the fascinating ancient book of Genesis in dialogue with historical and contemporary theological reflection. Their essays offer new vistas on familiar texts, reawakening past debates and challenging modern cliches.

Moberly, R. W. L.
The Theology of the Book of Genesis
The book of Genesis contains foundational material for Jewish and Christian theology, both historic and contemporary, and is almost certainly the most appealed-to book in the Old Testament in contemporary culture. R. W. L. Moberly's The Theology of the Book of Genesis examines the actual use made of Genesis in current debates, not only in academic but also in popular contexts. Traditional issues such as creation and fall stand alongside more recent issues such as religious violence and Christian Zionism. Moberly's concern - elucidated through a combination of close readings and discussions of hermeneutical principle - is to uncover what constitutes good understanding and use of Genesis, through a consideration of its intrinsic meaning as an ancient text (in both Hebrew and Greek versions) in dialogue with its reception and appropriation both past and present. Moberly seeks to enable responsible theological awareness and use of the ancient text today, highlighting Genesis' enduring significance.

The Sacrifice of Isaac. The Aqedah ( Genesis 22) and its Interpretations.
The central theme of the papers read at the conference about the Aqedah is the history of the reception of Genesis 22: the sacrifice of Isaac. After observations related to the biblical text and human sacrifice in Ancient Israel, the sacrifice of Iphigeneia is studied, followed by papers about the reception of the Aqedah in Qumran, in Jubilees, in Rabbinical and in Christian Syriac traditions, finallly in a recently published poem in the Bodmer papyri and in the Koran. Important contributions are made by the history of art. Two essays in this volume study the older iconography and the Aqedah in Italian art. The reception in modern times - Kierkegaard, a gender-motivated and a psychoanalytical reading - can be found in the last part of the volume. The studies published in this volume bring surprising and oft-neglected aspects of the famous narrative to light. How in different times and in different circles Genesis 22 has been interpreted is an encouragement for hermeneutical reflection and a help for exegesis itself.

When the Great Abyss Opened. Classic and Contemporary Readings of Noah`s Flood
The story of Noah's flood is one of the best-loved and most often retold biblical tales, the inspiration for numerous children's books and toys, novels, and even films. Whether as allusion, archetype, or literal presence--the American landscape is peppered with 'recreations' of the ark--the story of Noah's animals and the ark resonates throughout American culture and the world. While most think of Noah's ark as a dramatic myth, others are consumed by the quest for geological and archeological proof that the flood really occurred. Persistent rumors of a large vessel on the mountain of Ararat in Turkey, for instance, have led many pilgrims and explorers over the centuries to visit that fabled peak. Recent finds suggest that there may have been a catastrophic flood on the shores of the Black Sea some 7,600 years ago. Is this then the reality behind the ancient tale of Noah? More to the point, why does it matter? What does the story of the Flood mean to us and why does it so stir the collective imagination? When the Great Abyss Opened examines the history of our attempts to understand the Flood, from medieval Jewish and Christian speculation about the physical details of the ark to contemporary efforts to link it to scientific findings. Unraveling the mythical dimensions of the parallel Mesopotamian flood stories and their deeper social and psychological significance, J. David Pleins also considers the story's positive uses in theology and moral instruction. Noah's tale, however, has also been invoked as a means of justifying exclusion, racism, and anti-homosexual views. Pro-slavery advocates, for example, used the story of Noah's Curse on Ham's son Canaan to rationalize the enslavement of Africans. Throughout this expansive and lively book, Pleins sheds new light on our continuing attempts to understand this ancient primal myth. Noah's Flood, he contends, offers a unique case study that illuminates the timeless and timely question of how fact and faith relate.

Outside of Eden: Cain in the Ancient Versions of Genesis 4.1-16
This study is an examination of the principal ancient translations of Gen. 4.1-16 in the Hebrew Bible. The goal is to understand the translation techniques adopted by the translators, to what extent external influences may have affected their work, and how each version communicates its message through its literary form. In addition to the versional renderings of the Hebrew text, this inquiry also takes into account various ancient Jewish and Christian interpretations of the Cain narrative. The primary focus of the work is on the diverse exegetical tendencies of Hebrew Bible translation in the ancient world and on how these interpretations were transmitted in particular cultural milieus.

Genesis
Over het eerste boek van de Bijbel raak je niet uitgedacht. Het blijft fascineren. Aan de andere kant kan men ook overweldigd raken door de veelheid aan publicaties. Daarom beginnen we deze bundel met nieuwe studies over Genesis met een overzicht van het onderzoek van de laatste twintig jaar. Vervolgens worden de hoofdlijnen geschetst van het boek. Daarna is er weer ruimte voor verdieping en voor verrassende en misschien zelfs schokkende nieuwe inzichten. Met veel aandacht voor de veelzeggende Hebreeuwse tekst wordt er geschreven over de Bijbelse antropologie in de eerste hoofdstukken en over de prachtige verhalen over Eva, Kain, Noach, Abraham, Jakob en Jozef. En dan is er ook nog veel moois te lezen en te zien over de relatie met de iconografie van het oude Nabije Oosten. Ook wordt er aandacht besteed aan een van de bekendste Nederlandse exegeten van Genesis: Frans Breukelman.

De bijdragen zijn van de hand van Evert van den Berg, Dick Boer, Jan Fokkelman, Walter Hilbrands, Izaak de Hulster, Henk Jagersma, Piet van Midden, Reinoud Oosting, Rinse Reeling Brouwer, Axel Rooze, Willien van Wieringen en Ellen van Wolde.

Stroes, Herman
De herschepping van Israel. Een lezing van Genesis 1
Het zal duidelijk zijn dat het kunstzinnige en betekenisvolle Lied op Gods Schepping niet gaat over de wereld en hoe die zo geworden is. Op grond van de Bijbel kan m.i. niets steekhoudends worden ingebracht tegen de gedachte van een al dan niet bestaande evolutie. Voor alle duidelijkheid overigens: evolutie bestaat, en is natuurwetenschappelijk verifieerbaar. Evolutie kan echter onmogelijk aan de orde zijn in Genesis 1, en wel om de eenvoudige reden dat Tenach daar geen boodschap aan heeft of zelfs maar zou kunnen hebben. Want voor de vrome Jood draait het in Tenach vooral om een leven naar de Torah; tot eer van God en tot heil van mens en dier. Herman Stroes is in 1936 geboren. Na studie theologie aan de Vrije Universiteit onder o.a. prof Ridderbos werd hij gereformeerd predikant in Rotterdam, Nes Ammim en Wijk bij Duurstede. In 1980 werd hij leraar godsdienst in het middelbaar onderwijs. Zijn belangstelling als theoloog ligt voornamelijk op het terrein van Tenach, en hij is al lang gefascineerd door Gen 1. Hij heeft geprobeerd zijn inzichten daarover te verwerken in een dissertatie, maar die is niet voltooid voornamelijk doordat zijn gezondheid sterk achteruit ging.

Vogels, Walter
Abraham - onze vader
Abraham is een religieuze figuur die sinds eeuwen en wereldwijd zijn stempel nagelaten heeft. De drie monotheistische godsdiensten - jodendom, christendom en islam - doen allen een beroep op dezelfde Abraham, die zij 'onze vader' noemen. Abraham heeft een hele tijd voor Mozes geleefd, de grote wetgever en omzeggens de stichter van het volk Israel, voor Jezus, de stichter van het christendom en voor Mohammed, de inspirator van de islam. De verhalen die zijn leven beschrijven stellen hem niet voor als een joodse beoefenaar, noch als een christen, noch als een moslim. Als deze drie grote godsdiensten Abraham aanzien als hun vader, dan is het omdat zij in hem een man met een diep geloof zien.

In dit boek beschrijft Walter Vogels het verhaal Abraham in de Bijbel en zijn betekenis in de drie grote religieuze tradities. Hij heeft ook aandacht voor Abraham in de kunst.

Terug naar het begin. Of waarom Genesis 1,1 niet over Gods schepping van de wereld gaat
Verlangen naar het begin maakt dat mensen zich telkens weer een beeld proberen te vormen van wat aan oorsprong van alles staat. Veel van deze beelden zijn beinvloed door de wetenschappelijke, maatschappelijke of religieuze posities die men inneemt. Zo is Genesis 1 gelezen vanuit een van deze posities als een tekst die over het absolute begin in ruimte en tijd gaat. En is het eerste vers gelezen als een indrukwekkend poetisch beeld of als een feitelijk verslag van God die de hemel en de aarde schiep. Onder die lezers bevinden zich degenen die in het Darwinjaar( 2009) weten te vertellen wat Darwin zegt en wat de bijbel zegt en hoe die twee tegenover elkaar staan. Door een nauwkeurige studie van de Hebreeuwse grondtekst wil de auteur aantonen dat verschillende lezersgroepen, of zij nu creationisten of evolutionisten zijn, onrecht doen aan de tekst zelf.

Terug naar het begin is de handelseditie van de inaugurele rede uitgesproken bij de aanvaarding van het ambt van hoogleraar Exegese van het Oude Testament en Bronteksten van het Jodendom aan de Faculteit der Theologie en Faculteit der Religiewetenschappen van de Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen.

Zakovitch, Yair
Jacob: Unexpected Patriarch
A powerful hero of the Bible, Jacob is also one of its most complex figures. Bible stories recounting his life often expose his deception, lies, and greed, then puzzlingly attempt to justify them. In this book an eminent biblical scholar looks at Jacob and his life story as it is presented in the Bible, but also reconstructs the stories that the writers of the Bible wanted to suppress - stories that were well-known, perhaps, but incompatible with the image they wanted to promote. Through a work of extraordinary literary archaeology, Yair Zakivitch explores the recesses of literary history, reaching back even to the stage of oral transmission, to identify sources of Jacob's story that preceded the work of the Genesis writers. The biblical writers were skilled mosaic-makers, Zakovitch shows, and their achievement was to reshape diverse pre-biblical representations of Jacob in support of their emerging new religion and identity. As the author follows Jacob in his wanderings and revelations, his successes, disgraces, and disappointments, he also considers the religious and political environment in which the Bible was written, offering a powerful explication of early Judaism

Zevit, Ziony
What Really Happened in the Garden of Eden?
The Garden of Eden story, one of the most famous narratives in Western history, is typically read as an ancient account of original sin and humanity's fall from divine grace. In this highly innovative study, Ziony Zevit argues that this is not how ancient Israelites understood the early biblical text. Drawing on such diverse disciplines as biblical studies, geography, archaeology, mythology, anthropology, biology, poetics, law, linguistics, and literary theory, he clarifies the worldview of the ancient Israelite readers during the First Temple period and elucidates what the story likely meant in its original context.

Most provocatively, he contends that our ideas about original sin are based upon misconceptions originating in the Second Temple period under the influence of Hellenism. He shows how, for Ancient Israelites, the story was really about how humans achieved ethical discernment. He argues further that Adam was not made from dust and that Eve was not made from Adam's rib. His study unsettles much of what has been taken for granted about the story for more than two millennia and has far-reaching implications for both literary and theological interpreters.

Ziony Zevit is Distinguished Professor of Biblical Literature and Northwest Semitic Languages and Literatures at the American Jewish University in Los Angeles. He is widely recognized for his publications in Hebrew epigraphy, biblical studies, and ancient Israelite religion.
