In this week’s episode: Genesis 32-35. We examine yet another disturbing story in the Tanakh – the rape of Dinah – and how commentators of various persuasions (male and female, strident and stodgy) have understood the incident. We also consider how female sexuality and sex work challenge male notions of propriety and morality – and how, in the Tanakh, it usually ends badly for everyone. Sigh.
Every two weeks, we look at and discuss a portion of the Tanakh from Genesis to 2 Chronicles. It might take a while. Please be patient.
