The Book of Ezra-Nehemiah and the Books of Chronicles

This course focuses on the books of Ezra, Nehemiah and Chronicles in the Hebrew Bible, which are important parts of Hebrew Bible Historiography reflecting the situation of the Jews in the Second Temple Period. The scholarship associated with the Second Temple/Persian Period is also soaring in new and exciting frontier which we hope this course can help students to follow such a trend. Issues including textual criticism, authorship and readership, sources, theme and theology will be discussed.
