Abstract

LOMBAARD, Christo. Issues in or with Genesis 22: An overview of exegetical issues related to one of the most problematic biblical chapters. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.34, n.2, pp.1-5. ISSN 2074-7705.

The understanding of the Akedah (Genesis 22) has since its very inception been contentious. The psychologically disturbing and theologically challenging account renders a series of exegetical and interpretative problems. Often methodology serves to hinder a fuller perception of the elements and aspects of the text, examples of which are given here relating to the opening phrase to the chapter, the choice of literary or historical placement implied by the exegete's choices on the opening phrase, the treatment of verses 15 to 18 (and, hence, verse 1) and the treatment of the morality (ethics and philosophy) involved with this text.
