Wisdom and the Psalms
This course studies the “wisdom” genre of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, namely Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Ecclesiasticus and the Wisdom of Solomon, and some wisdom passages in the prophetic genre, as well as the book of Psalms. It studies the concept of “wisdom” in these books, and their distinction from, and relation to the other books of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. At the same time, it also considers its relationship to the ancient Near East genre of instruction literature.
