About-

In recent scholarship, the field of folklore studies has gained a new acceptance among biblical scholars even though introductory texts in the area are not available. This book aims to fill that gap by presenting the modern field of folklore, providing case studies of its application to biblical texts (Gen. 3; Ex. 12; 'mashal'), including useful suggestions for further work in the area, and making the field of folklore studies accessible to students of the Hebrew Bible.
