This conference will offer a literary interpretation of the story of Elijah and the restoration of the son of the widow and its function in the larger narrative of Elijah and the reservation and restoration of rain (commonly referred to as the contest with the prophets of Baal).   In contrast to the suggestion of some scholars that this story “could be omitted from its context without any damage to the whole,” we will consider the story of Elijah and the restoration of the son of the widow as the interpretive key to the immediate larger narrative. In contrast to a historical critical approach to the text, this conference will focus on the contribution literary criticism, specifically understood as close reading, makes to our understanding and appreciation of the biblical text.   All are welcome.
