Chapter Summary

This chapter contains three technical terms: "Humor", "irony" and "Yahwist prehistory". It takes a few passages from the Yahwist prehistory, which let you feel the reader and the reader that they are humorous or ironic to understand.With respect to the relationship of man to the animal world can be a similar opinion of the Yahwist to the priestly representation. The Yahwist is at least a possible, if not realized, partnership between humans and animals while the animals are shown in the priestly creation story consistently as objects of domination of man. The biggest mystery in the story of Cain and Abel is the question of why Yahweh accepted Abel's sacrifice while he spurned the Cain.The book of Hebrews explains that Abel had offered up by his faith a more valuable sacrifice than Cain. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Yahwist prehistory; humor; animal world; Cain; Abel; book of Hebrews
