(Far From) All About Eve
Hosted By: Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS)
Biblical storytellers are notorious for withholding crucial information about characters’ backgrounds, thoughts, feelings, and motivations. The story of Eve in Genesis is an extraordinary case in point. There are yawning gaps in the narrative, 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?
