Introduction to the Hebrew Bible
This course orientates students to the diverse scholarship which encompasses the study of the Hebrew Scripture: from archaeology, historical-critical, grammatico-historical, socio- historical methodologies to the history of composition of the biblical books, languages, religions and literature of the period before the common era. Inevitably, it also introduces the world of the ancient Near East — its history, religions and literature, which the Hebrew Scripture belonged and related to. This course traces the challenges confronted by the nation of Israel from its beginning up until the period of the Second Temple.
