Chapter Summary

The primarily textual work of the preceding section is aimed at providing a more solid foundation for future textual, linguistic, and exegetical analysis of the Genesis Apocryphon. This chapter seeks to contextualize the wider settings of: 1) the book of Genesis; 2) the ancient Hellenistic map of the inhabited earth, on which both the Apocryphon and Jubilees partly depend; and 3) the extant narrative of the rest of the Genesis Apocryphon. The chapter provides a detailed, comparative analysis of 1QapGen 16-17 and the parallel passage in Jubilees (8:11-9:15). It seems likely that the symbolic dream given to Noah in 1QapGen 13-15 was inserted by our author into the succinct plot of Gen 9:20-27 for a number of reasons.

Keywords: book of Genesis; Genesis Apocryphon 16-1; Hellenistic map; Jubilees
