Chapter Summary

This chapter examines Jub. 14:1-24, in which the interrelated promises of progeny and land play an important part. This passage consists of two themes which are paralleled in Genesis. The first part, Jub. 14:1-20, is a rewriting and interpretation of the first conclusion of the covenant of God and Abram as described in Genesis 15, the second, Jub. 14:21-24, an abbreviation and integration of the first account of Hagar and Ishmael in Genesis 16. After an outline of the structure of both Jub. 14:1-24 and Genesis 15-16 and a comparison between these texts, the chapter discusses the meaning of the covenant and the promises of progeny and land in Jubilees 14 and their significance for the central figures Abram, his wife Sarai, her slave-girl Hagar, and their sons Isaac and Ishmael.

Keywords: Abram; Genesis 15-16; God; Ishmael; Jubilees 14
