Abstract The article discusses the most recent source-critical reconstruction of two pre-Priestly linkages (»J/E«) between the ancestor tradition and the Moses tradition (L. Schmidt, ZAW 124 [2012], 19–37) and seeks the reasons for the surprisingly persistent disagreement about the literary history of this section of text (in particular the Joseph narrative). Drawbacks are identified, inter alia, in the inappropriate equation of (synchronic) incoherence and (diachronic) disunity (»Uneinheitlichkeit«) and the failure to appreciate conventions or possibilities of narrative style. Conversely, it can be shown that the standard Judah/Reuben division and the proposed J/E strands in Gen 50 – Ex 1 result in an unaccountable lack of coherence. Instead indications of the incorporation of an artistically composed »Josephnovelle« into a free-standing patriarchal narrative are affirmed and the literary combination of »Genesis« and »Exodus«, probably for the first time, in the Priestly tradition (KP) and their post-Priestly elaboration are outlined.
