Midrash is the Jewish tradition of telling stories about biblical passages in order to help understand them. Biblical stories are often very brief and cryptic. Midrash fills in the gaps from a particular perspective/interpretation, and/or it updates the stories with modern references to make it more relatable. As such, midrash is not meant to be authoritative (which makes it perfect for UUs).

This is the story about the person who started the Universalist church; his name was John Murray.
