It is believed to be created by the second-century Talmudic sage, Rabbi Simeon bar Yohai and authored by the Spanish Kabbalist, Moses de Leon before 1300. The text presents a mystical interpretation of each chapter and verse of the Torah in a metaphysical reality map of the sefirotic tree of life.
Here we find spiritual explorations of numerous biblical narratives, including Jacob's wrestling with the angel, Joseph's kidnapping by his brothers, his near seduction by Potiphar's wife, his interpretation of Pharaoh's dreams, and his reunion with his brothers and father.
