Frères et sœurs dans la Bible
Collection Lectio Divina - N° 238
208 pages - nov. 2010
A man tricks his father and steals the benediction intended for his brother, a woman marries her own sister’s intended, brothers sell one of their siblings to a slave dealer... The biblical writings about relations between siblings are certainly not irenic: they express envy and jealousy, rivalry and hatred. Between brothers and sisters, there is murder, theft and even rape! This is truly humanity as we know it, with all the difficulty of fraternal relations. Each in its own manner, the Biblical narratives explore the different ways relations between brothers and sisters evolve. It takes time, meetings, personal progress to establish or regain a fraternal relationship. The author has made a study paying particular attention to the keys to Bible reading supplied by narrative analysis. The challenge of fraternal relationships is clearly exposed: it is no less than the identity of each one of us and the possibility to live with another human being, close, but other. And we observe that the Biblical narratives give a triple image: fraternity as a project, a fraternity to construct, a fraternity in hope.
