    596 words
    Rebekah The values in Genesis are disobeyed by yet another woman who does not conform to the female model of a fertile mother. While fertility is an overriding value in god's human construct that women in Genesis threaten to undermine women also obstruct the "natural" course of history which god has set in motion as part of his ideal world.

  • Object In The State Of Action
    472 words

  • Jonah's Actions
    786 words
    The book of Jonah differs from the books of all the other prophets in that its only message was addressed to the people of a foreign nation.
