Solving Puzzling Biblical Texts

Hosted By: Haberman Institute

The Bible contains many confusing and hard-to-untangle texts. For example, right after Moses returned from talking with God at the Burning Bush, God sought to kill him. Suddenly, Zipporah saved Moses’ life by circumcising him on the spot (Exodus 4:24-26). What is the meaning of this text? Is its placement in the narrative important?

Join the Haberman Institute to unpack and ask questions about such puzzling texts, many of which you probably were not taught in Hebrew school. See what traditional and modern interpreters say about these texts and learn to interpret them yourself.
