More Footnote Three

The Creative Word: Canon as a Model for Biblical Education, Second Ed.,
Walter Brueggemann, Fortress Press, 2015, page 21

Going on from Peter Berger, Brueggemann now turns to Michael Fishbane ...

Michael Fishbane shrewdly suggests that this question-answer exchange may reflect not only an opportunity for instruction, but a moment of conflict in which the younger generation defies and resists the teaching of the older generation and waits to be persuaded. "Deuteronomy 6:20-25 disclosed a tension between two generations' memories, sets of experiences and commitments. It questions the ability of fathers to transmit their laws and faith to their sons, who see these as alien and do not feel the same responsibility concerning them ..."

That is a big question - can (or, indeed, should) the fathers do it?
