Brotherhood and Inheritance

Full Product 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.

Brotherhood and Inheritance by Bradford A. Anderson was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in July 2013. The ISBN for Brotherhood and Inheritance is 9780567103819.
