In a patriarchal setting corresponding to the Canaan of Genesis, the location is discordant and troublesome. Dr. Teubal means that the trouble is eradicated, although, if we remember the fact that Sarah and the opposite matriarchs pointed out within the narratives acted in the tested, conventional Mesopotamian function of priestess, of a category of ladies who retained a hugely privileged place vis-a-vis their husbands.
Dr. Teubal indicates that the “Sarah culture” represents a nonpatriarchal approach suffering for survival in isolation, within the patriarchal surroundings of what was once for Sarah a international society. She additional exhibits that the insistence of Sarah and Rebekah that their sons and heirs marry other halves from the outdated native land needed to don't rather a lot with choice for endogamy and cousin marriage as with their goal of making sure the continuation in their previous kahina-tradition opposed to the overpowering odds represented through patriarchal Canaan.
