Genesis as Dialogue

Thomas L. Brodie

Oxford University Press

Theoretically, Genesis’ diptych structure may be seen either as belonging to the nature of the text or simply as an editorial addition – a way of arranging the text. To determine which explanation is true, research needs to attend to the full meaning of the individual texts or diptychs; the immediate context of Genesis; the further context of the Primary History (Genesis‐2 Kings); the larger context of the Bible as a whole; and the context of diverse theories concerning sources, particularly the documentary theory.

Keywords:   diptych, documentary theory, redaction, sources, structure
