How did Israel begin? The Bible presents its own narrative, with a group
of people migrating from Canaan to Egypt to escape famine; then becoming
enslaved in Egypt, put to work in major building projects; and then
finally leaving Egypt, wandering the Sinai Desert, and returning to
their ancestral home. Explore current scholarly views on the origins of
Israel through a survey of archaeological data and written remains from
both Egypt and Israel. The conclusions paint a picture which is
sometimes consistent, and other times at odds, with the biblical narrative.
This lecture is offered in conjunction with Rutgers Reunion Weekend.
This program is free and open to the public.
