Chapter Summary

This chapter re-caps the phenomena of quotation, allusion and commendation, and points out how these conceptual blends characterize the stories of Israel's leaders throughout Pseudo-Philo. The chapter examines whether these conceptual blends are also found in the stories of other leaders whose stories have been expanded positively by Pseudo-Philo: Amram, Kenaz, and Deborah. It also reviews how Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum (LAB) presents Miriam, Jael, Seila, Elumah, and Hannah, positive figures whose actions are centered, at least initially, in the private sphere. The chapter analyses whether the figures that Pseudo-Philo regards neutrally or negatively, such as Jephthah, Gideon, Dedilah, and Micah, contain these same figures.

Keywords: Amram; Deborah; Kenaz; Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum (LAB); Pseudo-Philo
