In this course we will study biblical texts closely, uncovering the multiple perspectives the texts offer on a variety of topics, including founding myths, leadership (prophetic/kings), religious ideals and women’s sexuality. At this tense time of polarization in the United States, the Bible offers us a different path for managing disagreements.

Through our class discussions we will explore what modern resonance lies within these ancient texts and how we might apply some of the learnings to our lives today. Our close analysis will employ a number of different methodologies, including literary readings, rabbinic and traditional, as well as academic. No prior knowledge of biblical texts is expected. Bring an open mind and heart.

With instructor Dr. Susie Tanchel.
