Lecture no. 6 from the course: Understanding the Old Testament
Taught by Professor Robert D. Miller II | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Read the Call of Moses to liberate the Israelites in Egypt and observe how it resonates with the call of other Biblical prophets. Investigate the Hebrew name of God, Yahweh; how God’s nature is expressed in the name; and why Jews did not speak or write it. Finally, take account of scholarly controversy regarding interpretations of the Ten Plagues and the meaning of the Exodus from Egypt.
