Brotherhood and Inheritance (Library Of Hebrew Bible/old Testament Studies Series)

Bradford A. Anderson, Laura Quick, Jacqueline Vayntrub

Hardback 2012-02-02

Publisher Description

This study offers a canonical reading of the Esau and Edom traditions, examining the portrayal of Esau and Edom in "Genesis", "Deuteronomy", and the prophetic material. First, it is argued that the depiction of Esau and his descendants in "Genesis" and "Deuteronomy" is, on the whole, positive. Second, it is put forward that Edom is portrayed negatively by the prophets for violating their kin, and for disrespecting the divine apportioning of the lands. Finally, it is suggested that these traditions have resonance with one another based on recurring literary and theological motifs, heuristically framed as brotherhood and inheritance. Over the last 30 years this pioneering series has established an unrivaled reputation for cutting-edge international scholarship in Biblical Studies and has attracted leading authors and editors in the field. The series takes many original and creative approaches to its subjects, including innovative work from historical and theological perspectives, social-scientific and literary theory, and more recent developments in cultural studies and reception history.
