Scholars who accept Ben Sirae(tm)s comments on women at face-value or ignore parallel comments about men preclude fundamental questions about the functions of these statements and about their contexts. Gender in the Book of Ben Sira provides a distinctly-different perspective on the discourse of gender in the extant Hebrew manuscripts. The focus on wordplay, genre-constraints, and topics named in the booke(tm)s subtitlee"Divine Wisdom, Erotic Poetry, and the Garden of Edene"expands the boundaries for studies of gender.
