Please join us, on our weekly theater broadcast. We will broadcast two lectures based on the exodus story from the bible.
12pm CST - 1pmCST
Israel in Egypt: Moses and the beginning of Yahwism.
The book of Genesis concludes with the story of Joseph and the descent of the 12 tribes into Egypt, setting the stage for the Exodus in which God is seen as redeemer and liberator. Moses is the first in a line of apostolic (messenger) prophets and Yahwism is initiated.
1pmCST - 2pmCST
From Egypt to Sinai
This lecture traces the account of the Exodus (and the origin of the Passover festival as a historicization of older nature festivals) and Israel's liberation from bondage under Pharaoh. The story reaches its climax with the covenant concluded between God and Israel through Moses at Sinai. Drawing heavily on the work of Jon Levenson, the lecture examines Ancient Near Eastern parallels to the Sinaitic covenant and describes the divine-human relationship (an intersection of law and love) that the covenant seeks to express.
The broadcast will be played on our theater page, once the broadcast starts you can also chat on that same page.
After the broadcast, the videos will be added to the group esoteric theater where all other videos are as well. There you can view again.
The broadcast will be played on October 13th, 12 pm CST.
