Hassel Adult Education Lecture: The Bible and God: Why So Many Names?

February 10, 2013 9:00 AM

Readers of the Hebrew Bible immediately note something unusual regarding the Deity in the text: God in the Bible has many names.  Later rabbinic tradition adds to this oddity by recording scores of additional names for the Divine.  Why so many names of God?  In a tradition that strongly asserted its monotheistic point of view, doesn’t multiple names of God dilute that message of monotheism?  This study session will dive into this question with an attempt to explain and understand for our time what the multiple names of God might mean. Join us for coffee and bagels at 9:00 am; the lecture begins at 9:30 am.
