A few months ago, a friend introduced me to the work of the Jewish scholar, Rabbi David Fohrman. Reading his work and watching many of his videos on his AlephBeta site have been immensely rewarding for me in my understanding of Scripture. Rabbi Fohrman is a very skilled reader of the biblical text, noticing a great many things that other scholars miss.
In "Understanding Pharoah's Dream", he discusses the symbolic significance of Pharaoh’s dream, how Joseph may have been able rightly to interpret it, and how it shed light on the meaning of Joseph’s own life. This video will give you a taste of Rabbi Fohrman’s work, and a glimpse into the way that many biblical narratives harbor richer treasures than our typical forms of reading can discover.
