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
In his clear and readable, style Walter Brueggemann presents Genesis as a single book set within the context of the whole of biblical revelation. He sees his task as bringing the text close to the faith and ministry of the church. He interprets Genesis as a proclamation of God's decisive dealing with creation rather than as history of myth.

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.

Hendel. R.
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.

Reading Genesis. Ten Methods
Reading Genesis presents a panoramic view of the most vital ways that Genesis is approached in modern scholarship. 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.

De staf van Mozes is een neerslag van de omgang van de oude verhalen en de mensen van nu. Die mensen zijn mensen met veel meer vragen dan antwoorden. Dit geschrift is eigenlijk een soort voortzetting van de gesprekken in kringen en de viering van de verhalen in zondagse diensten. Schitterende verhalen hebben generaties later de sobere historische gegevens verwerkt, aangevuld, veranderd… zodat de “herinneringen” aan vroeger werden tot bemoedigingen voor later.

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.

Lex Koot en Cees Tromp waren jarenlang godsdienstdocent. Samen met twee collega's schreven zij in de jaren zeventig en tachtig de bekende bijbelmethode Naderen om te Horen voor leerlingen van de middelbare school.

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, J.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, K. et al
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. The Legacy of the Patriarch in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam
Jews, Christians, and Muslims supposedly share a common religious heritage in the patriarch Abraham, and the idea that he should serve only as a source of unity among the three traditions has become widespread in both scholarly and popular circles. Inheriting Abraham boldly challenges this view, demonstrating Abraham's distinctive role in each tradition, while delineating the points of connection as well.

Oersoep en Oervloed. Bijbels spreken over schepping
In nogal wat gedachtewerelden dwaalt het idee rond dat natuurwetenschap en geloof elkaar bijten. En als je vraagt waarom dat zo diep zit, komt bijna altijd de schepping aan de orde. Vooral Darwin is dan de grote boosdoener. Want: ‘Als Genesis 1 niet gebeurd is zoals beschreven, waarom Genesis 6-9, het verhaal van de zondvloed, dan wel? En als dat ook al een oerverhaal is, heeft Abraham dan wel bestaan? En is de hele bijbel niet eigenlijk een fictie?’

Vragen genoeg. Ze mogen, ze moeten er zijn. In dit gespreksboekje worden die vragen niet uit de weg gegaan. Integendeel zelfs: ze worden er ook nog eens in opgeroepen. Want die nieuwsgierigheid onderdrukken heeft geen zin. Dat levert vroeg of laat een heleboel schade op.

Natuurwetenschap en geloof zijn verschillende terreinen. De wetenschap is bezig met de natuur, de gelovige met de schepping. En als je ze beide hun eigen plek geeft, is er niet zoveel aan de hand. Geloof in God heeft geen natuurkundig bewijs nodig. Zoals natuurwetenschap niet op een godsbewijs zit te wachten.

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.

Riet, P. van t
De filosofie van het scheppingsverhaal, Genesis 1 opnieuw belicht
In dit boek legt Peter van 't Riet het eerste hoofdstuk van Genesis uit en vat de tekst op als een betoog over de vraag hoe wij ons als mens tot de wereld verhouden. Hij stelt hierbij diverse zaken aan de orde: zoals de acceptatie van de werkelijkheid als voorwaarde voor wereldverbetering; de empirische houding tegenover de schepping; de economische omgang met de natuur; de mens als lichamelijk en geestelijk wezen; de verhouding tot God en de relatie tussen de seksen; de maakmaarheid van de samenleving.

Veel gezichtspunten worden belicht door de tekst van het scheppingsverhaal te vergelijken met de scheppingsmythen van de Babyloniers en de filosofie van de oude Grieken, maar ook met de commentaren van de rabbijnen.

Scarlata, Mark W.
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.

Wolde, Ellen van
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.
