The Jacob Saga

Lecture no. 6 from the course: The Old Testament

 The Jacob Saga

Taught by Professor Amy-Jill Levine | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

The story of Isaac's sons Jacob and Esau (beginning in Genesis 25) provides an example of the insights that can be gleaned from "form criticism." This approach attends carefully to metaphor, double meaning, narrative voice, physical descriptions, handling of motivation, and use of dialogue.
