The official course description is as follows:
This course will examine the history of interpretation of the Old Testament. We will look at the historical conditions and theological underpinnings of the interpretation of the Bible throughout the ages. Topics will include ways in which the Bible interprets itself, the readings of the early Christian community, classical rabbinic texts, medieval Jewish and Christian texts, and modern historical-critical scholarship. We will examine Biblical texts themselves, different interpretations of those texts, and the motivation and historical context behind them. All readings will be in English and no previous knowledge is assumed.
It starts on March 28th, so sign up now! More information and registration can be found at
