Bible Stories You Thought You Knew

Saturday, May 21, 2022 20 Iyyar 5782

12:00 PM - 1:15 PM

Bible Stories You Thought You Knew  returns to in-person learning for 2021 - 2022  with monthly sessions during Kiddush lunch on Shabbat.  We will continue to answer the question, "What comes after Deuteronomy?"    Having already completed our studies of the Books of Joshua, Judges, and 1 Samuel,  we will begin this year with the book of 2 Samuel, and work our way into 1 Kings.   We will have the opportunity to examine many well-known stories, such as:

  • David is crowned King of Judah 
  • Michal chastises David
  • David seduces Bathsheba
  • Amnon rapes Tamar
  • Abishag the Shunammite "warms" David
  • Adonijah crowns himself king
  • David dies and Solomon becomes King

As always, we will turn to the Sages for their insights on the meaning and purpose of these stories.  Midrashic texts will play a major role in our exploration of these stories and their characters.  

No preparation is needed to attend this series of classes, and all are welcome to join us at any time -- for one session or for many!

Please be aware that our class discussions and materials are often "PG-13" rated due to the violence and sexual content of many of these stories.
