History, Science or Law: What is the Bible?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

On the battleground between tradition and modernity, what do we do when a 3,000 year old holy book contradicts modern science and contemporary historiography? Who will yield? Join us for a journey where we will examine how the classic Torah commentators perceived the genre of the book they were analyzing.
