Revisionist Reading of the Esau-Jacob Stories in Genesis 25-36. Understanding Esau in a Positive Light
2011 0-7734-3670-7
Traditional interpretations of Esau in Jewish and early Christian literature have provided a negative portrayal of Esau and contemporary Genesis commentators tend to interpret Esau as cruel, stupid, and impulsive, having no concern for the family tradition or the future legacy. The present book revisits these negative perceptions of Esau and rereads the texts according to the sequence of the Jacob-Esau narrative.
