Genesis 34 is one such account; the assault of Dinah and her brothers' revenge is a tale of abuse, deception, and violence that commends no clear lesson to the reader. In this session, we ask how we might benefit from reading this story.
Genesis tells grand stories that give us fundamental insights into the mysteries and conflicts of human existence.
