Pharaoh: Consumed by the Chaos He Sows

Parashat Bo

The first parashiot of Sefer Shemot set up two sides to a cosmic conflict: Pharaoh, the side of chaos and death;and God, the side of order and life. Rav Shai will read the plague narrative through this lens and see if there is a deeper meaning to these signs and portents than merely revenge. (5774)
