Isaac's Death and Resurrection (Bilingual Version) (Kernel to Canon)

 
9781493749768: Isaac's Death and Resurrection (Bilingual Version) (Kernel to Canon)

Like beautifully layered rock formations lining the walls of a desert canyon, so is the Biblical text. Story is piled upon story until the foundations are invisible. Those foundations tell a different story—one that only a trained geologist can tease from the rock, one that only a Biblical philologist, trained in the dissection of literature, can find in the text. In the earliest version of Isaac’s story, Isaac has a very short life. He is killed for his father’s sins in Genesis 22 and is only resurrected by later authors. The newly animated Isaac leads a long and interesting life remarkably like his father’s. Isaac’s Death and Resurrection traces the development of the Isaac story from its divergent beginnings into the canonical text of Genesis.
