Course Cluster: Christianity Studies

The Hebrew Bible, also known as the Old Testament, is a diverse collection of writings spanning a millennium in time and reflecting the societies, beliefs, ideas, and institutions of the people of ancient Israel. This course introduces the Hebrew Bible in its complex historical, religious, and literary dimensions and seeks to introduce students to the variety of approaches modern readers bring to a reading of the Bible. We will combine close readings of the biblical texts in translation with contemporary approaches to the Hebrew Bible and its context in the ancient Near East.
