Potiphar's Desperate Housewife Seduces Joseph: Through Midrash and Commentary

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As with most Bible "stories," the seduction of Yosef by Potiphar's wife — the original Desperate Housewife — leaves the reader with many puzzling questions and gaps in the story. Fortunately, the Midrash and Meforshim (commentators and exegetes) come to the rescue and make the story complete.
