(Far From) All About Eve

Hosted By: Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS)

Biblical storytellers are notorious for the way they withhold crucial information about characters’ backgrounds, thoughts, feelings, and motivations. The story of Eve in Genesis 3 is an extraordinary case in point, especially given its longlasting cultural significance. There are yawning gaps in the story, and the diverse ways that readers fill those gaps engender remarkably divergent interpretations. What do we learn about biblical storytelling when we confront a text that can be interpreted in diametrically opposite ways? And what do we learn about ourselves from the interpretive decisions that we make?
