Many characters in the Bible enjoyed rich “afterlives” as subjects of Jewish legend, literature, and thought – from the time of the Bible itself and through the present.  This course will trace the interpretive afterlives of five representative Biblical characters: Joseph’s wife Asenath, Elijah the Prophet, King Saul, Miriam, and Moses.
