Joseph: From Spoiled Brat to Savior II
May 16, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
The story of Joseph is the longest and most sophisticated in the Book of Genesis. It’s also been interpreted in myriad ways. But by reading it closely and examining Joseph’s interactions with others, we can come to understand him more fully. We will also explore the range of interpretations of the Joseph story – by the rabbis and the Apocrypha, as well as by Christians and Muslims. This course is a continuation of our exploration of the Joseph story, but new participants are welcome!
