9. Hagar (S01 E09)

Description

Have you ever wondered about what the legal codes say about strangers in the Hebrew Bible? What does Hagar's name actually mean? In this episode, Jill and Zac discuss the figure of Hagar and the implications of reading her story in Genesis 16 in a different way. They cover some background information on the "ger" ("stranger" or "foreigner") and how the critical concept of Enrique Dussel's analectics contributes to a justice-oriented reading of Hagar's abuse and mistreatment. This episode also includes an important Womanist reading of Hagar as well some thoughts about how Hagar's story intersects with the immigration context in the United States.
