Chapter Summary

The internal contradictions-between the rewritten stories and the legal passages and between the rewritten stories and the chronological framework-are a direct result of the literary development of the composition. The analysis of the ideology and theology of Jubilees by means of the literary-critical approach proposed in this conclusory chapter uncovered a fully developed, unified worldview in the redactional layer. This worldview is expressed in three different areas: law, evil, and chronology. The perspectives expressed in each of these realms can be reduced to one fundamental notion: God established the entire world order from the beginning of time. These three primary areas of the theology of Jubilees all express the same fundamental notion: God created and determined all aspects of the universe. The literary-critical approach suggested in the chapter has allowed for a precise analysis of the worldview of the redactional layer of Jubilees.
