Program Fee: Free

Abimelech in the Book of Judges is a true (if illegitimate) son of the legendary Gideon: clever, murderous, and vengeful. Although he ultimately lacks his father’s good luck, he packs more back-stabbing punch in his brief career than most any other Biblical character. The story of Abimelech is also spiced with poetic propaganda, an array of dubious friends and enemies, and a comical (as well as didactic) ending that really underlines the disastrous (and entertaining) chaos of the age of Judges 3000 years ago. Students will receive a rich visual introduction to the era of Judges as well as extensive notes to assist in translation.

Prerequisite: While basic knowledge of Biblical (or modern) Hebrew is helpful, students without that background will be able to share the learning since both the Hebrew text and an English translation will be on screen for every verse.
