Talmudic Biblical Interpretation פירוש התלמוד למקרא
Four one-hour sessions taught by Rabbi Dr. David Moster. Tuesdays at 3pm November 5, 12, 19, 26. All classes recorded. All passages translated. All are welcome. Satisfaction guaranteed.
This course explores the biblical interpretations of the Talmudic Rabbis, who both revered the biblical text and transformed it dramatically. Passages for study will come from both the halakha (law) and aggadah (everything else). Specific topics will include interpretations regarding Biblical contradictions, "omnisignificance," the reinvention of Biblical characters, the retrojection of Torah study onto Biblical figures, and two examples of sustained Biblical commentary found in the Talmuds.
