Of all the figures in the Bible, David arguably stands out as the most perplexing. He was a warrior who subdued Goliath and the Philistines; a king who united a nation; a poet who created beautiful verse; a loyal servant of God who proposed the great Temple and founded the Messianic line; a schemer, deceiver, and an adulterer. Join Jo Bruce to explore Wolpe’s book which reexamines David in an attempt to find coherence in his seemingly contradictory actions and impulses. The author unravels David’s complex character to question his exalted place in history.

The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage is proud to collaborate with CWRU – Siegal Lifelong Learning on remote lectures and virtual classes.
