Lecture series will cover documentary hypothesis of Bible authorship
SAN DIEGO (Press Release)–The Agency for Jewish Education announces a 2-part lecture series with Noah Hadas beginning on September 14th. The title of the class is “Who Wrote The Bible?”
Why do there appear to be two creation stories in Genesis? Why did Abraham ask Sarah to pretend to be his sister two different times? How many animals of each species did Noah bring onto the ark? These questions will lead us to consider the Documentary Hypothesis, the scholarly assertion that the Torah is a compilation of separate sources. In this class, we will begin to untangle these sources and shed light on some of the Torah’s most puzzling stories.
Morning (10-11:30am) and evening (7-8:30pm) sessions are offered. This class meets at the Lawrence Family JCC, 4126 Executive Dr., La Jolla, CA 92037. Tuition is $10. For more information or to register, contact the Agency for Jewish Education, (858) 268-9200 ext.102 or visit AJE’s website.
