This two-part book traces the literary and historic study of the story of the 'Wooing of Rebekah' in the Hebrew Bible and its creative interpretations in Rabbinic Midrash. Part 1 treats such issues as the characterization of the narrative agents in the biblical story, the use of repetition as a narrative structuring device, and the question as to the roles of Rebekah and Isaac in this story as well as in the broader Isaac-Rebekah narratives. Part 2 follows several rabbinic interpretations of this story, dealing with, among other topics, the development of the motif of Rebekah's virginity in rabbinic Raggadah- and Rhalakha- as well as the reception of this theme in modern feminist studies of midrash. While treating these topics, this is at the same time a methodological inquiry into the dynamics of midrashic interpretation, treating rabbinic techniques such as 'gap-filling' and 'linkage', and its differences from modern biblical exegesis.ContentsPt. 1 The 'Wooing of Rebekah' in Genesis 24 Ch. 1 Methodological orientation and introduction 25Ch. 2 Events, plot and type-scene in Genesis 24 45Ch. 3 Genesis 22-24 59Ch. 4 The use of repetition in Genesis 24 69Ch. 5 Characterization in Genesis 24 91Ch. 6 A matriarchal cycle? 119Pt. 2 Genesis 24 in the Midrash Ch. 7 Midrash and the academic study of the Bible 135Ch. 8 The formal study of Midrash 151Ch. 9 Abraham's servant and other midrashim: three form-analyses of rabbinic midrashim following Goldberg's method 171Ch. 10 Gap filling and linkage in the Midrash on the Rebekah cycle 183Ch. 11 The virginity of Rebekah in Halakhah and Aggadah: part 1. the Mukat Ets 193Ch. 12 The virginity of Rebekah in Halakhah and Aggadah: part 2. the three-year-old Rebekah 213
