Course Description

The Bible has often been read (or dismissed) as an inspired book mediated through our cultural or religious beliefs. We will try to shed these interpretive glasses and read it as a book written by people in a certain time and place, helping us to appreciate the book’s complexity and open our ears to its very human voice. (You don’t need to have taken Part I to take this course.) Presented by Barbara Rosenthal, MA, with distinction from the Jewish Theological Seminary Graduate School in Bible and Ancient Semitic Languages. She has taught courses on the Bible at AJR Rabbinical School and Long Island University Extension in NY.
