Primogeniture, A Cultural Tool for the Interpretation of Genesis Narratives.
Keywords:Primogeniture, Cultural, Genesis (Genesis-Narratives), Interpretation, Birth Right, Firstborn, Double Portion, Leadership
Most of the Genesis narratives can only be understood culturally, without which there would be difficulty in comprehending them. The research used analytical, survey methods to interpret certain passages in the light of the custom of primogeniture, and found out that certain passages like the drama of the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, God's making Cain a vagabond, the genealogy from Adam to Noah (Gen. 5), and many other narratives in Genesis are better interpreted in the light of primogeniture. The research concluded by proving that Primogeniture is a tool for the interpretation of certain Genesis narratives.
