Abstract The theological discourse that is presented in narrative form in Gen 15 should not be measured by the standards appropriate to a narrative that has developed over time. Attempts along such lines to reconstruct an underlying narrative with a single theme such as a son, numerous descendants or the land must be seen as failures. Only verses 11.13–17a* and 19–21 are secondary additions. Even the main text is post-Priestly. It belongs at the end of a series of debates about Abraham and personal identity in Judah at the end of the Persian period.
