Chapter Summary

Another example of the tension between a rewritten narrative section and an appended legal passage is found in Jubilees’ story of Judah and Tamar (Genesis 38). A comparison between the biblical story and its retelling in Jubilees reveals the exegetical motives behind the reworking. While keeping in mind the distinction between the rewritten narrative and the additional material, it is important to note the possibility that some of the material in the passage appended to this chapter may agree with the exegetical positions presented in the rewritten narrative, while other material may not. In such a case, the chapter suggests that the supplementary material that agrees with the rewritten narrative is indeed the work of the reviser of the story, while any data which do not match the rewritten narrative are the product of another hand.
