JACOB AND ESAU: NARRATIVE STRUCTURE OF FORGIVENESS AND ITS EXISTENTIAL IMPLICATIONS (GEN 32:4-33:20) (Jakub i Ezaw: Struktura narracyjna przebaczenia i jej egzystencjalne implikacje (Rdz 32,4-33,20))
Languages of publication
In the light of Gen 32:4-33:20 the article shows how complex and hard is to put forgiveness into action. It involves not only a chain of meaningful events, in which a conflict between the two brothers arises and develops, but also their life stories, social status and political position. The most important fact is that, in terms of mutual reconciliation, its final outcome is impossible to be achieved without a number of God's interventions in the conduct of both parties.
