Radak on Genesis

Creation, Humanity, and Torah; Rabbi David Kim?i (Radak) provides a notably rich and elaborate commentary, including a strikingly original, allegorical interpretation of story of the Garden of Eden

=========

On the early chapters of Genesis—which recount the creation of the world and the early travails of humanity—Rabbi David Kimḥi (Radak) provides a notably rich and elaborate commentary, including a strikingly original, allegorical interpretation of story of the Garden of Eden. In his treatment of this material, Radak draws substantially on the work of Maimonides. Crucially, however, he also shows striking independence and creativity—including on important theological questions—even as he builds on a Maimonidean foundation.

This study elucidates Radak’s theological exegesis of that section of Genesis, expounding his conceptions of the purpose of creation, the natural order, and the fate of human beings. More generally, the book describes how Maimonides&rsquo, views on several issues—including Mosaic prophecy, the divinity of the Torah, and the purpose of biblical stories—shape Radak’s Pentateuchal interpretation.

The latter half of the study features a detailed introduction to Radak’s allegorical commentary on the Garden of Eden story, an expansive annotated translation, and a newly edited version of the Hebrew text. In addition, it offers a translation of Radak’s rich general introduction to his work on Genesis.
