Chapter Summary

The book addresses the topic of the relationship between Jewish and Christian exegesis in Late Antiquity, a formative period for the two religions. It examines the work of the Rabbis and Church Fathers, but also considers material broader than the classical literature to include for example the piyyutim or Gnostic writings. The unifying theme of the work is focus on examination of interpretations of the book of Genesis, a book of theological significance to both Jewish and Christian traditions. The occasion for the book was provided by the conference entitled 'The Exegetical Encounter between Jews and Christians in Late Antiquity' held at the Faculty of Divinity of the University of Cambridge in June 2007.
