Summary and Info
Using the methodology of redaction criticism, the study reconstructs the origins of the Joseph narrative. It reveals that the story only gradually developed into its present form. Even in its most ancient version (Gen 37–41*), it can be regarded in the context of the history of the Patriarchs, whereas its connection to the Exodus took place secondarily – but still prior to the Priestly scriptures – with Israel’s departure from Egypt.
