Is the Story Really About Joseph?

Join us as Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg introduces us to his course The Story of Our Hebrew Fathers: Joseph's Story. He starts by taking the focus away from Joseph as a prototype of Jesus and refocuses attention on the unique details of the story. We talk about what Tamar contributes to the narrative and whether or not these chapters of Genesis should be called the Story of Jacob's Kids.

Come with us on a journey through Joseph's story and grapple with the question if Joseph's story is  actually about Joseph. Maybe the narrative addresses the transformation in several of Jacob's sons. And what roles do Tamar and Asenath play?
