Just out of curiosity, what are you referring to here? This doesn't seem to be the Genesis account. >>> [log in to unmask] 05/18/03 11:48AM >>> Why, for example, do we get Eve's account of her creation several books before we have Adam's account of _his_ creation? Must we interpret the two accounts differently when we take this order into account? Or was it simply a matter of narrative convenience, and does it merely confuse our understanding of the epic to try to account for this order?
