Satan Made Me Do It!: The Source of Evil in the Hebrew Bible. (4-27-21)
We will start with the question of how the people of the Hebrew Bible explained the presence of evil in their world. We will see that their explanation shifted over time, and only later did they began to posit a separate entity that caused evil. Indeed, Satan rarely appears in the Hebrew Bible. Where does this idea of a separate source of evil come from, and what is the relationship of God to this evil? To fill out the picture we will briefly examine some of the “Intertestamental” literature that was written after the Hebrew Bible.
