Course Description

The story of the Garden of Eden, with man and woman’s Creation, sin, confrontation with God, punishment, and exile constitutes an archetypal prototype for us to understand the essentials of human existence. Our course will dive deep into the text, the ideas, and the commentaries, and we will also remember to ask the most basic, yet ignored questions, like, “What is up with a talking snake?”
