How did the apple, unmentioned by the Bible, become the dominant symbol of temptation, sin, and the Fall? Rutgers professor Azzan-Yadin Israel will discuss his new book, "Temptation Transformed," which takes the reader on a journey into the mystery behind why the forbidden fruit became an apple, upending an explanation that stood for centuries. Free and open to the public. Free parking available.
