(Course Description and Outline From Spring 2023)

This course is Part Two of a year-long sequence in interpretation of the Hebrew Bible. In the Fall semester we read the Pentateuch, the Historical Books, and Psalms. In the Spring semester we focus on Prophets and the remaining books of the Writings.

The larger goal of the class is to develop a friendship with the Hebrew Bible, in the context of and together with a community of people who turn to its text for comfort, direction, challenge, and insight. A friendship strong enough to see the beauty and wisdom in the text, while also being able to ask difficult, critical questions of it.
