Strange Expectations from the Bible

In this General Ed course, we will examine some of the commands, expectations and laws that the Bible expects its readers to adhere to and see how as 21st-century readers of the Bible we can make sense of otherwise crazy stuff in it. To guide us through this process we will be reading, A. J. Jacobs The Year of Living Biblically whose attempt at a literal adherence to the biblical regulations for a year often ends up with uproariously humorous results. As a non-practicing New York Jew reading the entire Bible for the first time, Jacob’s discoveries are illuminating and often poignant.
