Fathers and Daughters in the Hebrew Bible PDF

Johanna Stiebert

The father-daughter dyad features in the Hebrew Bible in all of narratives, laws, myths and metaphors. In previous explorations of this relationship, the tendency has been to focus on discrete stories - notable among them, Judges 11 (the story of Jephthahs human sacrifice of his daughter) and Genesis 19 (the dark tale of Lots daughters seduction of their father). By taking the full spectrum into account, however, the daughter emerges prominently as (not only)
expendable and exploitable (as an emphasis on daughter sacrifice or incest has suggested) but as cherished and protected by her father. Depictions of daughters are multifarious and there is a balance of very positive and very negative images.

While not uncritical of earlier feminist investigations, this book makes a contribution to feminist biblical criticism and utilizes methods drawn from the social sciences and psychoanalysis. Alongside careful textual analysis, Johanna Stiebert offers a critical evaluation of the heuristic usefulness of the ethnographic honour-shame model, of parallels with Roman family studies, and of the application and meaning of patriarchy.

Following semantic analysis of the primary Hebrew terms for father ( ) and daughter ( ), as well as careful examination of inter-family dynamics and the daughters role vis-à-vis the sons, alongside thorough investigation of both Judges 11 and Genesis 19, and also of the metaphor of God-the-father of daughters Eve, Wisdom and Zion, Stiebert provides the fullest exploration of daughters in the Hebrew Bible to date.

Fathers and Daughters in the Hebrew Bible. By … 02.09.2013 · A C onventional view of father–daughter relationships in the Hebrew Bible, at least among feminist critics, is that daughter-figures are mostly absent from the text, and when present are helpless, passive, nameless, ‘expendable’ objects typically subject to abuse and violence. Commonly cited are what Phyllis Trible has called ‘texts of terror’: episodes in which Lot offers …

Bible, 1891. Ironically, Laban used the exact same kind of treachery on Jacob as Jacob used on his father. Laban switched his daughters, giving Jacob Leah instead of Rachel, the bride Jacob desired and expected. It is imperative to look at the content of the actual blessing given to Jacob by mistake. Then we can consider how The Bible and Interpretation - Incest in the …

The Lot Complex: The Use and Abuse of Daughters in the ... daughters in the Hebrew Bible is directly linked to their relationship with father figures—or, more generally, the patriarchal ideology of the biblical text. Thus, the Lot complex refers to the biblical presentation of daughters and the pattern of desires, fears, and themes that surround it. I use the story of Lot and his daughters in Gen 19
