Joseph: Interpretations through the Ages
In this series with expert teacher Regina Stein, you will examine the variety of ways in which the story of Joseph, presented in Genesis 37-50, has been interpreted in post-Biblical Jewish literature (such as the Apocrypha and the Dead Sea Scrolls), by the classical rabbis, as well as by Christians and Muslims. In what ways do their interpretations promote their own agendas? How can a single Biblical character come to be understood in so many different ways? You'll gain a greater knowledge of the Joseph story and a better understanding of Biblical interpretation. No previous knowledge of the Biblical story of Joseph is required.
