    Joseph, Potiphar's Wife, and the Jewish Colony in Egypt: A New Reading of the Joseph Story

    The biblical story of Joseph has fascinated generations of scholars. How do we explain the story’s positive image of Egypt, when the Bible usually portrays it as a place of slavery and suffering? This lecture will offer a new interpretation of the popular text, with insights from papyri recovered from the site of the Jewish colony of Elephantine in southern Egypt. **Reception to follow in the Semitic Museum.**
