Biblical Subversives

Biblical Subversives: Biblical Stories in Conversation with One Another, with Rabbi Amy Scheinerman.

Thursdays, November 7 and 21, 2013, 7:30pm. Stories, especially sacred stories, encapsulate truths that are hard to articulate as elegantly as stories convey them. Stories are also multi-faceted, and at times they are responding to other stories in the Tanakh: debating with, undermining, and even subverting their message. This is an aspect of what scholars call intertextuality. For us, it has important and fascinating implications – conversation was raging and ongoing in the ancient world about subjects we think the Bible is clear on, but is not: loyalty, obedience, redemption, prophecy, the ability of people to change, human individuality and dignity, and much more. We will examine two pairs of stories that are “in conversation” with one another, the second often undermining the premise and values of the first.

If possible, participants should bring a complete Tanakh/Jewish Bible.

Rabbi Scheinerman was ordained by the Reform movement in 1984 and received a Doctor of Divinity degree in 2009. She is the hospice rabbi in Howard County, immediate past-president of the Baltimore Board of Rabbis, editor of the Torah commentary column in the Central Conference of American Rabbis newsletter, and a member of the CCAR Board.
