Discovery: October 8, 2023

The Exodus and African American Interpretations with the Rev. Judy Fentress-Williams, PhD.

October 10, 2023

In the first session of the fall season of Discovery, we’ll explore the biblical books of Exodus and Joshua and consider how these narratives of freedom for God’s people can be understood in the context of the ancient Near East. In conversation with scholars and clergy, we will also consider how these texts have shaped both African American and Indigenous interpretations of the Bible in the United States.

On October 1 and 8, the Rev. Judy Fentress-Williams, PhD. presents on the Exodus and African American Interpretations.
