Abstract

Aspects of reconciliation in the book of Genesis. This contribution investigates the notion of reconciliation in the book of Genesis. The problem addressed is how the phenomenon of reconciliation between human beings happens in spite of, or perhaps because of, alienation between people. Research on the topic highlights three episodes in the book, Abraham and Lot (Gn 13), Jacob and Esau (Gn 33), and Joseph and his brothers (Gn 37-50). This contribution adds a fourth episode of reconciliation that is between Jacob and Laban (Gn 31). In the end, a few conclusions are drawn and applied to current society.
