LECTURE 3
- Rubinical traditional emerges after destruction of first temple
- Rubinical Judaism is the Judaism we see today
- Why Abraham is considered the first Hebrew patriarch?
o Renewing a new agreement
o To be a patriarch: fatherly connotation, concrete example/prototype
o Abraham was supposed to represent the typical Jewish believer...you behave in a
certain way, then here’s the things that will result from it (he’s a prototype)
o Abraham and Sarah have been trying to get children but it wasn’t successful...but has a
child with Hagar (second wife)
o Sarah has child named Isaac
o God requests that Abraham sacrifices his son but then Isaac is the son that is up for
sacrifice
o This was God’s test to see if he would do it or not
o Abraham is an example of a monotheist
- These stories are forcing people to think...there’s an educational component to this
- People are looking at these stories and are trying to make sense of them
- Isaac is born through Sarah
- Isaac is believed to be the father of the Jews and Ishmael the father of the Arabs :S or Europe’s
- JacobIsraelites...one who struggles with god
- Jewish publication society (on the internet for more stories)
- As Jacob’s leaving the land of kingdom to go on an adventure he sees an angel and a stairway to
heaven like an escalator...it’s holy. The theme here is that there is a transaction between the
divine and human
- Israel is not just his name...it also represents his group/tribe
- Joseph is Jacob’s son
- Joseph is sold into slavery since he was chosen as the special child and his siblings didn’t like that
- He was sent to Egypt
- The chronology in the Hebrew bible is very important
- God knows whats going to happen from one moment to the next
- Moses is one of the labourers in Egypt
- He gets upset one day because one of the soldiers were rude so he kills the soldier
- So he leaves and wanders around because he’s scared (God is aware that he’s wandering)
- This allowed Moses to encounter god in a very intimate and close scenario in order to convince
Moses that he needs to leave his people and return to Egypt and actually attempt to free them
- So god speaks to Moses through a bush that burns without getting burnt...saying he needs
Moses to go back to go back to Egypt to free God’s people....God is concerned about this
particular people
- Moses says no
- God convinces him
- Moses reason is because he’s a terrible public speaker so eh won’t be able to convince anyone
