Description

Using archaeological findings and an understanding of the Ancient Near East, we will come to a better understanding of the transfer of Ma'arat HaMachpeila to Avraham. Example ?s - Why is there no "buy" or "sell" language in the story? Why did Ephron want Avraham to take the field as well? Why was there no written contract of the transfer? (Sources: Daat Mikra - Bereishit Vol. II, pg. 142. Parashat Derachim by Yitzchak Meitlis, pg.62-65)
