Item description for Primaeval History Interpreted: The Rewriting of Genesis 1-11 in the Book of Jubilees (Supplements to the Journal for the Study of Judaism) by J. T. A. G. M. Van Ruiten...
This volume deals with the primaeval history in the Book of Jubilees, and interpretive rewriting of the biblical narratives of Genesis through comparison of Genesis 1-11 and Jubilees 2-10, in order to get a clear picture of the specific way the biblical story was rewritten. Each chapter offers an overall comparison of the parallel pericopes in Genesis and Jubilees, with special attention to the structure of the passages. It then gives a synoptic overview of the text of the parallel passages, along with a classification (e.g. addition, omission, variation, rearrangement), and analysis of the dissimilarities.
