Morality of Torah
Case Study in the Rebellious Son

Avi Strausberg

In this session, we'll get to know some of our most important core texts and learn what they are, how they work, and when to turn to them. We'll do so by tracking the development of the "rebellious son," from when we first encounter him in the Torah, following him into the conversations of the rabbis in the Mishnah, and finally we'll see what the later rabbis of the Gemara do with this text. We'll use this case to explore the question, "What do the rabbis do when they encounter a difficult text in the Torah and what might that mean for us in modern times?"
