Abstract Consensus was reached in the conversation on some of the questions concerning 2Sam 13:1 -22a, though not all of them. For example, there was agreement that the term לבבות lacks any aphrodisiac connotation so that it becomes unlikely, if not impossible, that Tamar could have seduced Amnon. Furthermore it was considered probable, that in 2Sam 13 a different tradition of law has to be taken into consideration than in Lev 20:17 and Dtn 27:22. This narrative is less about the problem of incest and the prohibition of it, than about a rape. This assumption lends credibility to Tamar's statements. Also regarding the question, whether 2Sam 13 is a family tale or a political story, there was complete unanimity that they are both inseparably linked together: indeed, the fatal consequences of this complicated brother-sister-conflict derive precisely from the fact that their father is the king and yet fails as king to take action against his own son to say nothing of his failure to advocate for his daughter.
