This study of Jubilees 19-30 (Jacob traditions) focuses on the author's redaction of biblical tradition in Genesis 23-34, especially the additions to and deletions from the tradition. Two questions arise consistently: how did the writer interpret/redact the story, and what did he propose (theological tendencies)? The focal point is how he retold the story in keeping with his vision.
