Crimes in the Bible

Version française

Volume 1: 4,000 to 1,100 B.C.


The Bible gives us many cases of 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 to bring them back to us in the form of gripping narratives. We thus rediscover in a new light Cain, Noah, Canaan, Abraham, Lot, Jacob, Simeon, Levi, Joseph, Moses, Phinehas, Joshua, Abimelech, Jephthah, Delilah, Micah, the Levite of Ephraim… Each of these characters having been author, accomplice, witness or victim of these crimes.

A fascinating and original reading of the Bible.
