Jacob's wound : homoerotic narrative in the literature of ancient Israel by Theodore W Jennings( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The very suggestion that themes of homoeroticism may be present in Hebrew narrative may seem odd given the supposition that the religion and culture of ancient Israel resolutely opposed same-sex erotic relationships. The apparent prohibition of homosexuality in Leviticus and the story of Sodom from Genesis have been made to speak for the whole Hebrew Bible. The oddity of this situation has not been lost on some interpreters who have recognized that the story of Sodom tells us no more about attitudes toward what we call homosexuality than the story of the rape of Dinah tells us about attitudes toward heterosexuality." "Theodore Jennings says that the well-known eroticism of the Hebrew Bible is not confined to heterosexuality but also includes an astonishing diversity of material that lends itself to homoerotic interpretation. Jennings examines the saga materials associated with David and the complex erotic connections between David and Saul and David and Jonathan; the shamanistic forms of eroticism involving Samuel and Saul and Elijah and Elisha; and finally the transgendering of Israel by several prophets who use this device to explore the adultery and promiscuity that they wish to attribute to Israel, as well as the story of Joseph."--BOOK JACKET
