The Gender of God in Ancient Israel
Part of our spring learning series, Relating to God
This session is generously sponsored by Linda and Ronald F Daitz and by Yale Asbell, JTS trustee.
Monday, May 2, 2022, 2:00-3:30 p.m. ET
With Dr. Benjamin Sommer, Professor of Bible and Ancient Semitic Languages
How did the biblical authors, and other Israelites, view the gender of God? Did they perceive God to be male? Did any of them perceive God as female? To answer this question, we will examine both several biblical texts as well as archaeological evidence.
