Abstract

Five chapters of Vayyiqra Rabba and Pesiqta d'Rav Kahana are very similar to each other. Indeed, they are so similar that some scholars have suggested that the variants between them should be considered as no different than the variants between manuscripts of one text. It is the argument of this paper that this perspective is incorrect, and that we have to distinguish clearly between the redactorial moment at which the large midrashic unit we call Vayyiqra Rabba, Chapter 28, was created and the redactorial moment at which the large midrashic unit we call Pesiqta d'Rav Kahana, ʿOmer, was created. The relationship of these texts is thus not comparable to the relationship between the parallel texts of Pesiqta d'Rav Kahana and Pesiqta Rabbati. It is further claimed that a close reading of these parallel passages in Vayyiqra Rabba and Pesiqta d'Rav Kahana leads us to the conclusion that the former has often preserved a more pristine form of the tradition-unit than the latter. Given the extensive dimensions of the passages that are paralleled in the two texts, this conclusion leads us to the further conclusion that Vayyiqra Rabba, Chapter 28 was used by the editor of Pesiqta d'Rav Kahana, ʿOmer.
