Besnijdenis van jongens

Vruchtbaarheidsritueel of teken van het verbond?

Abstract

The crux in Ex 4 seems to be the apotropaic function of blood of the circumcision to avert death. The most plausible interpretation is that Moses had not been circumcised and that Zippora circumcises her son to save Moses by it. A comparison with the Arabic proves that circumcision and marriage were closely connected (as it still is in Islam) which explains the 'bridegroom of blood'.
