Genesis as Dialogue

Thomas L. Brodie

Oxford University Press

The two sets of genealogical material (of 4:17–26 and ch. 5) bring about a dramatic expansion in Genesis’ story line. The two are complementary in their use of names and in other ways. The first portrays civilization's development and degeneration; the second, God's restorative influence. Genesis 5 takes up threads from all the preceding chapters.

Keywords:   civilization, complementarity, development, genealogical, Genesis 4–5
