Fall 2018 Online Course: Introduction to the Hebrew Bible

Fall 2018 Online Course: Introduction to the Hebrew Bible

An overview of the stories, hymns, poems, sayings, and songs that form the Christian Old Testament

Over many hundreds of years oral and written stories, hymns, poems, sayings and songs were brought together to form the Hebrew Bible, sometimes referred to as the Old Testament. This book has become a central text of not only Western civilization, but the backbone of the three monotheistic faiths: Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. The course will offer a critical overview of the content, periods in history, geography, socio-political, and theological approaches to the Hebrew Bible. While we will use historical-critical tools and view this material as a product of human culture, emphasis will also be given to understanding these scriptures from a Christian faith perspective. There are no prerequisites for this course.
