What Were the Words of God?
Sunday, February 6, 7:30pm (Virtual via Zoom)
Featuring Donald Kane, BASONOVA President and BAF Chair
In Partnership with BAF/BASONOVA 

Moses wrote down everything the Lord had said (Exodus 24:4) 

Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth” (Jeremiah 1:9)

Does the Hebrew Bible contain the immutable words of God? Did the prophets speak the words of God? Might there be older versions of our sacred writings that we can point to that add or subtract from the text or, in some cases, demonstrate different theological meanings? This illustrated lecture will highlight differences between what is called the “Masoretic” Bible Jews use today, the Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible known as the Septuagint, sacred texts recovered from among the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the Pentateuch used by Israel’s Samaritans. The presentation will also put into context how the ancestors of today’s Jews apprehended the sacred writings that were pluriform in their time, and; examine the role scribes played in reproducing, harmonizing and changing these texts, and indeed, in preserving Revelation.
