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.
