BBST 751 - Wisdom in the Biblical World

3 credits
This course shall examine questions of the origin, development, and use of wisdom (as a theme and as personified) in the ancient world. The course shall briefly survey the history of scholarship on the wisdom tradition in three major periods (ancient Israelite, the Second Temple period, and the NT period, with focus on the Gospels). Greater attention will be given to the forms of wisdom (proverbial wisdom and parabolic narratives), and their relevance and contribution to the social, religious and political institutions (Family, Temple, Palace, Court, Prophecy) of the ancient world. Signature of instructor required for registration.
