he first episode of David’s Elul Zoom lecture series, The Power of Change, the Challenge of Teshuva, considers early biblical figures whose individual examples of teshuva illustrate a range of human responses to this powerful idea of self-investigation, repentance, and remorse.
David examines four biblical stories, those of:
- King Saul
- King David
As always, David provides biblical and historical context to the discussion and invites his audience to examine these big ideas in relation to the text and themselves.
This is the first lecture in a four-part series presented via Zoom for Caulfield Shule in 2020 as part of its scholar-in-residence program.
