What does the Bible say about immigration and refugees? In the midst of a heated national controversy following the President’s executive order, Joel Baden, Professor of Hebrew Bible at Yale Divinity School, gave a talk on the issue for the YDS community.
Joel Baden is a specialist in the Pentateuch, Biblical Hebrew, and disability theory in biblical studies. He is the author of, among other books, The Composition of the Pentateuch: Renewing the Documentary Hypothesis (Yale University Press, 2012); The Promise to the Patriarchs (Oxford University Press, 2013); The Historical David: The Real Life of an Invented Hero (HarperOne, 2013); and The Book of Exodus: A Biography (Princeton University Press, expected 2017).
