“Israel in Egypt” by Edward Poynter

This course directs its attention to the historical background of the enslavement of the Israelites in Egypt until the liberation from slavery. Readings will draw from Biblical sources (Pentateuch, Prophets, and Hagiographa); rabbinic literature, Midrash; and literature surrounding challenges to the historicity of the enslavement and exodus narratives. Topics will include the entanglement with Egyptian culture, Israelite leadership, the pivotal role of women, the impact of persecution, and the biblical memory of the Exodus.

The class meets on Mondays, 7:30 p.m. – 9:45 p.m., September 25, 2017 and runs for ten sessions through December 4, 2017.
