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.
