Water and Women: The Torah’s Intentional Mysteries of Moses’ Origin

November 6, 2016

Our Torah Class on Exodus chapter 2.  Why so many ambiguities in Moses' origin?  Who are his parents?  Why he is raised by all women, but all the movies just focus on his relationships with men that are not found in the Torah?  What does his name mean?  Is Freud right that he's an Egyptian? How does his biography turn upside down the ancient-hero-origin-archetype according to Richard Elliot Friedman?  Is the Torah doing all of this on purpose?  Plus many more questions.  (Note: I have removed the many questions and comments that were not picked up by the microphone, and just left responses.)
