Leadership Crises of "Biblical" Proportions
Presented by Steve Kerbel, Jewish Education Consultant
Starting with the earliest Israelite kings, we will explore the Bible's honest criticism, skepticism, and history of kingship and leadership. We will primarily use the technique of close reading of the Biblical text to understand early Israelite history. Knowledge of Hebrew is always helpful but not necessary. We will be reading primarily in English with occasional references to the Hebrew to help understand the story, idioms, and choices of the redactor. Please bring any modern Hebrew-English Bible (Tanakh).
