This volume contains a critical edition of the Arabic translation and commentary on the Abraham narratives in the Book of Genesis (chs. 11-25) by the most prominent and prolific commentator of the Karaite "Golden Age", Yefet ben 'Eli ha-Levi (10-11 C.E.). Yefet's interpretation of Abraham's cycle establishes him as a highly original commentator and provides new insights into the history of exegesis of the book of Genesis. The edition is preceded by a comprehensive study of Yefet's hermeneutic approach, in comparison to other medieval commentaries on Scripture. Among the subjects discussed are Yefet's view on the authorship of the Torah, his translation techniques, literary aspects of his exegesis, and polemical overtones discernible in his commentary on Genesis. The study also includes an overall survey of earlier and contemporary Karaite commentaries on this book.
