Aggadic Transformations of Non‐Legal Pentateuchal Traditions

(p.318) 12 Aggadic Transformations of Non‐Legal Pentateuchal Traditions
Biblical Interpretation in Ancient Israel

Michael Fishbane (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Takes up the topic of the aggadic transformation of non‐legal pentateuchal traditions. In this category are such matters as the theological treatment of topics in the Genesis narratives (e.g. the notion of the divine image of mankind; or later reflections on perceived mythic features); the manna tradition; the priestly blessing; and the varieties of reuse of the formulary of divine attributes in the diverse genres of Scripture. Also taken up is the topic of typologies, and various sub‐types are dealt with (e.g. typologies of a cosmological–historical nature; of a spatial nature; and of a biographical nature). By this means, the broad range of analogies and correlations drawn by early and later tradition are considered—both explicit and implicit.

Keywords:   analogy, attribute formulary, correlation, divine attributes, exegetical correlations, exemplars, new exodus, retribution, typology
