BBCL 600 - Hebrew Bible: Torah and Former Prophets

3 credits
The Torah and Former Prophets constitute the Bible’s first and longest story, an extended account of ancient Israel’s trials and triumphs stretching from Genesis to Kings, from creation to the Babylonian exile. This literary collage shapes, deliberates, and debates Israel’s communal identity and destiny, its social, political, and moral visions, and its understandings of the divine. By employing a range of exegetical approaches and interpretive lenses, this course will explore both how these remarkably self-critical storytellers attempted to transform their own worlds and how that transformative power can be resourced for the creation and preservation of good communities across time and space. Pre-requisite: BBCL 501
