RG 191. Old Testament


Credits: 3
This course will enable the student to develop a critical perspective on the development of Judaism and its texts. To this end the student will identify and analyze the various factors that crucially impacted Judaism’s foundation and historical development and the development of its literature. The student will apply methods and resources to the biblical texts and to the processes that produced them, thus increasing comprehension both of the literature and of the religion it represents. Such methods and resources also increase comprehension of the historical setting and of the contemporary significance of those texts, to which end the student will examine how Judaism’s religious concepts are applied to and function in contemporary society.
