Genesis and exodus as two formerly independent traditions of origins for Ancient Israel


Schmid, Konrad (2012). Genesis and exodus as two formerly independent traditions of origins for Ancient Israel. Biblica : Commentarii ad rem Biblicam Scientifice Investigandam, 93(2):187-208.

Abstract

This paper is a response to Joel Baden’s article, which claims that the material in Genesis and Exodus was already literarily connected within the independent J and E documents. I suggest an alternative approach that has gained increased acceptance, especially in European scholarship. The ancestral stories of Genesis on the one hand and the Moses story in Exodus and the following books on the other hand were originally autonomous literary units, and it was only through P that they were connected conceptually and literarily.
