American Imago. XXIX, 1972: God the Father and His Sons. Howard H. Schlossman. Pp. 35-52.

The Book of Genesis contains the recurrent theme of two brothers in an adversary relationship—e.g., Cain and Abel, Esau and Jacob—wherein the first born is eliminated and the younger inherits the power and title of the father. The author suggests that this motif is the censored residue of the custom of sacrifice of the first born in a matriarchal religion which existed before the monotheistic Hebrew religion.
