G-d is the main character in our Holy Scriptures. This course offers the student a unique approach to understanding major features of the TANACH/Hebrew Bible. The canon reveals many surprising aspects about the personality of G-d as recorded throughout Scriptures. Some of our discussion may disturb the student who has an ironclad-image of G-d, but it may bring comfort to those who have concluded that the traditional images of G-d don't fit their multi-layered experiences of joy and sorrow. As with any journey to the heart of G-d, this one brings both fear and comfort. We'll consider the premise that G-d can be analyzed like any character in a play or novel. We'll also reveal the 32 names of G-d in Scriptures.
