The complicated and dramatic tale of Joseph is the main sustained narrative in Genesis. Many name it a literary masterpiece and a tale of significant intensity that may be learn on many degrees. In a lucid and interesting variety, Alan T. Levenson brings the voices of Philo, Josephus, Midrash, and medieval commentators, in addition to quite a lot of sleek students, into discussion approximately this complicated biblical figure.
Levenson explores such questions as: Why did Joseph’s brothers hate him so? what's completed through Joseph’s ups and downs at the route to striking luck? Why didn’t Joseph inform his father he was once alive and ruling Egypt? What used to be Joseph like as a husband and father? was once Joseph simply or merciless in checking out his brothers’ characters?
Levenson deftly indicates how an unbroken chain of interpretive traditions, regularly literary but in addition creative, have further to the intensity of this attention-grabbing and particular character.

The Bible comprises passages that permit either students and believers to venture their hopes and fears onto ever-changing empirical realities. by means of studying particular biblical passages as utopia and dystopia, this quantity increases questions on reconstructing the earlier, the impression of wishful mind's eye on fact, and the hermeneutic implications of facing utopia – “good position” but “no position” – as a style and an idea in biblical studies.
A believer like William Bradford may well process a biblical passage as utopia by way of analyzing it as directions for bringing a few considerably replaced society actually, even on the expense of changing into an oppressor. a modern biblical pupil could process an analogous passage with the ambition of finding the ancient fact at the back of it – discovering the areas it describes on a map, or arriving at a end in regards to the social fact skilled via a historic group of redactors. those utopian objectives are projected onto a utopian textual content.
This quantity advocates a decent hermeneutical method of the query of ways reliably a prior fact should be reconstructed from a biblical passage, and it goals to supply an instance of revealing – now not obscuring – pre-suppositions dropped at the text.
