National Identity—Intermarriage

Lecture no. 22 from the course: The World of Biblical Israel

National Identity—Intermarriage

Taught by Professor Cynthia R. Chapman | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Take a closer look at intermarriage with foreigners in the years after the restoration. In Genesis, the story of Dinah reflects the post-exilic anxieties about national identity. Likewise, the book of Ruth offers a rare glimpse into women’s perspective on marriage and survival in the restored Judah.
