Genesis 11:27-50:26 (New International Version: )The New American CommentaryBy: K. A. Mathews
Unparalleled in its importance in declaring God's will, Genesis is the foundation of God's Word. Beginning with Abram's call through Joseph's death, Mathews describes Genesis as the ordered, cohesive, and consistent work of one author, Moses. His thorough knowledge of the Hebrew text in its original linguistic and cultural context, add to the exposition as he examines Genesis' its literary and theological contours as well as its place within the Pentateuch and the larger biblical canon. He also examines early Jewish and Christian interpretations, and considers the narrative nature of the text.
