Three Weddings and a Funeral

Lecture no. 7 from the course: The World of Biblical Israel

Three Weddings and a Funeral

Taught by Professor Cynthia R. Chapman | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

To explore some of the practices and beliefs that surrounded marriage, Professor Chapman focuses on several biblical relationships: Isaac and Rebekah show us what was considered an ideal marriage in ancient Israel; Abraham and Hagar reveal the importance of producing an heir in marriage; and Dinah’s abduction and rape by Shechem offers insight into the role of proper family negotiations in protecting a woman’s status in marriage.
