Eight Extraordinary Stories, Eight Exceptional Teachers.

Not for nothing is the Bible the best-selling book of all time. Love, desire, betrayal, sibling rivalry — it’s all writ large against a backdrop of burning bushes, splitting seas and more transmogrify than you can shake a priestly rod at. Of course, strip away the paranormal (okay, and the prohibition against mixing fabrics in one garment), and a lot of the stories start to feel remarkably relevant circa 2017. Now is your opportunity to delve into eight of the best, each with a different — and captivating — expert.

Each week, a different distinguished biblical scholar will present an in-depth profile on one of these fascinating stories:

• February 14, Adam & Eve with Rabbi Barry Schwartz
• February 21, King David with Rabbi David Wolpe
• February 28, Cain & Abel with Rabbi Norman Cohen
• March 7, Elisha with Rabbi Andrea Weiss
• March 14, Dina with Rabbi Sara Hurwitz
• March 21, Isaac with Rabbi Avi Weiss
• March 28, Miriam with Alicia Jo Rabins
• April 4, Ruth with Dr. Jacob Wright
