In this class, Ross covers Torah Reading Balak (Numbers 22:1-25:9). Balaam is mentioned in the Torah, the Prophets, and the Writings. He is also the earliest biblical personality attested in Archaeology. Ross shows that the story of Balaam involves a convergence of geography, theology, archaeology, and technology. Who was this “pagan” prophet? What do we know of him, and what can learn from his words?
