Advanced Biblical Hebrew 3: Ancient Israel's "Egyptian" Tribe: The Levites
Blending elements from Richard Elliott Friedman's new bestseller, The Exodus and other sources, we will explore the historical, archaeological and textual evidence suggesting a special connection between Egypt and the tribe of Levi. From there, we will translate selected passages representing the oldest texts of the Hebrew Bible to test that connection.
Recommended Text: R.E. Friedman, The Exodus, HarperOne, 2017.
