Judaism's Story of Creation: Scripture, Halakhah, Aggadah
BRILL, 2000 - 296 páginas
During the formative age of Judaism, the first seven centuries CE, the great rabbis thought deeply about beginnings in light of endings. They imposed upon their sequential reading of each passage the accumulated results of their reflection about all passages. Thus, they encompassed Scripture, so as to describe the world as God had intended it to be. This act of intellect resulted in two distinct, ahistorical media of thought and expression, the Halakhah, law, and Aggadah, lore. The author provides three systematic accounts of the Halakhic reading, and two Aggadic accounts. The Halakhic accounts cover  Work and Rest,  Ownership and Possession, Eden and the Land, and  Ownership and Possession in the Household. The Aggadic accounts pertain to  the Six Days of Creation, and  Adam and Eve.
