King David: Adulterer, Murderer, Poet, Messiah (Second Semester) – With Dr. Regina Stein
March 7, 2017 @ 11:00 am - May 23, 2017 @ 12:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00am on Tuesday, repeating until May 23, 2017
“David, king of Israel, lives forever!” How does the complex, morally flawed David become the eternal hero of the Jewish people? In this semester we continue to evaluate David’s relationships as royal subject, husband, friend, father and king, and explore God’s covenant with him and his descendants. We will investigate David’s role as poet in the book of Psalms, see how he is viewed by the Prophets of Israel, and follow him in history and Rabbinic legend as he becomes the ancestor of the Messiah. You do not need to have attended the first semester of the “King David” class to attend.
