Genesis is about beginnings and origins. It is vitally important for understanding not only the biblical narrative, but also Christian theology. This volume brings together scholars with expertise in biblical studies, the traditions of Christian and Jewish exegesis, the history of art and literature, and various contemporary approaches to the study and interpretation of texts. The contributors draw on the long and complex histories of exegesis and interpretation, and examine the allusions, motifs, structures, context, and language from within the context of historical exegesis.
