The Leg in the Bible: An Insight into the Human Condition

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

When is a leg not just a leg? Setting aside any Freudian euphemism, we will attempt to uncover some deeper meaning in the seemingly bland biblical prose about the human leg, which appears over 250 times in the Hebrew Bible. Through a close structural examination, we will come to what I believe may be the Bible's depiction of the paradox of the human condition.
