In this class, we will look at some stories from the wilderness wanderings, as they are recorded in the Books of Exodus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. The stories I will focus on are told in at least two, but often three books. We will survey these separate accounts to observe similarities and differences between our sources. […]

The fourth book of the Pentateuch is known to the English-speaking, non-Jewish world as the Book of Numbers. The Hebrew title for the book is BaMidbar – במדבר, which means “in the wilderness.” It begins with a rather detailed census of the children of Israel and this seems to have led to the Greek Bible’s […]

Chapter 26 of the Bible’s Book of Leviticus contains what are often called the blessings and the curses. These are often studied and discussed alongside the blessings and the curses of Deuteronomy (chapters 27 and 28). Are these two accounts of the same lists? Do they contain similarities? Do they contain differences? What can we […]

In 622 B.C.E., the High Priest Hilkiah reported a great discovery – the original scroll of the Torah of Moses! The details of that discovery are recorded in the Hebrew Bible (2 Kings 22-23 and 2 Chronicles 34-35). A careful examination of these texts of the discovered scroll and the subsequent reform of King Josiah […]

What is a Moed, Chag, Shabbaton? These questions and more are covered in this class. We also compare and contrast three passages that describe the three […]

Leviticus 19-20, which comprises what scholars refer to as the Holiness Code contains several laws that are connected to laws from the Decalogue. Several other passages also relate laws that bear a resemblance to those we find in the Decalogue. These Decalogue texts form a sort of Decalogue constellation. In this video, I work through […]

In this class, we discuss the biblical diets with a focus on the laws of Leviticus chapter eleven and Deuteronomy chapter fourteen.

The meaning, cause, and remedy of the biblical ‫צרעת‬ have been the source of much debate. Traditional translations have rendered the word as leprosy, usually with the somewhat confusing caveat that despite the retention of leprosy, it does not mean leprosy. The root צרע‬ yields our problematic ‫צרעת‬ , proper names, and three occurrences of […]

This class is based on material found in Leviticus 8, 9, and 10. In chapter eight, Aaron and his sons are consecrated for their role as priests. This involves an anointing ceremony from which all later “messiah” studies must be based. In the Pentateuch, only the priest was anointed and therefore referred to as hacohen […]

The first seven chapters cover a series of types of sacrifices. According to Leviticus, expiation is tied to the sacrificial cult. Repentance alone, per Leviticus, is […]

Of course, we know there is no “DSS Bible” per se, but 40% of the scrolls are from Hebrew Bible texts–but they have significantly different readings, some of which agree with the Greek Septuagint (LXX) and the Samaritan Pentateuch. If you go to the site the live presentation will begin streaming. If you don’t see […]
