In this week’s teaching, Ross begins to explore some of the mysteries of the Hebrew Bible, particularly those texts which describe human encounters with the Divine. Can man see God? Maimonides, in his, The Guide of the Perplexed says that these are not to be taken literally, that they are describing an “intellectual apprehension.” The Christian Scriptures state clearly that no one can see God (John 1:18, 5:37, 6:46; I Timothy 6:16; I John 4:12). The Hebrew Bible has God Himself say, “No man can see My face and live.” And yet, despite these beliefs and supportive texts, the Bible also contains anthropomorphic texts, and passages which seem to present human encounters with God. In this introductory class, Ross begins to explore these mysterious matters.
