Abstract:

"Martin Kessler and Karel Deurloo maintain a clear focus on Genesis and what its words mean in themselves, in their narrative context, and in the context of the entire Bible. The unifying subject is the birth of Israel among the peoples of the world, beginning with the universal story of God's creation of earth, sky, and seas, moving toward the call of Abram, the first of the patriarchs, through Jacob, his grandson, and Jacob's sons, the progenitors of the twelve tribes of Israel."--Jacket.
