Strategic Ambiguity: East of Eden

Recently, Dr. Adam E. Miglio, Associate Professor of Archaeology at Wheaton College, joined me on “Exegetically Speaking” to demonstrate that exegesis involves knowing more than grammar and vocabulary. Often biblical authors employ strategic ambiguity to cause us to slow down and ask what a word or phrase means.  He treats Genesis 4.7 and the phrase “you must/will rule over it,” which characterizes life ‘East of Eden’.
