This chapter examines cases of Jew and non-Jew dialogue in the Bible and in Rabbinic Literature. The foundational element of the Jewish Bible is the dialogue between God and man and between man and man. This element was derived from the relationship of the deity to humankind, specifically to the Children of Israel. The expression of this relationship is not only through verbal revelation but also through human discourse and dialogue with the deity. The account of this dialogue in the Bible came after the Flood.
