Crimes in the Bible

Version française


4,000 to 1,100 B.C.

The Bible describes many crimes, ranging from the most common, such as theft, deceit or betrayal, to the most horrendous, such as rape, murder, war crimes or genocide.

As usual, Serge Janouin-Benanti has dissected these stories and rewritten them in the form of gripping narratives. We thus rediscover in a new light the stories of Cain, Noah, Canaan, Abraham, Lot, Jacob, Simeon, Levi, Joseph, Moses, Phinehas, Joshua, Abimelech, Jephthah, Delilah, Micah, and the Levite of Ephraim… Each of these figures was either the perpetrator, accomplice, witness or victim to a crime.

A fascinating and original reading of the Bible.
