This year we will look at how Israel portrays her history through the Books of the Old Testament. We will engage in a three,way conversation with these books: the context of the target audience at the time the books were written, the context of the history portrayed in each book, and the context of themodern audience. All are welcome, especially newcomers to bible study. The 90 minute class will be held on the third Friday evening of each month of the academic year, 7:00‐8:30 in Room 205. The textbook will be the Old Testament itself; no additional reading or long‐term commitment required. (The classes will be based on the work of Michael D. Coogan, The Old Testament, A Historical and Literary Introduction to the Hebrew Scriptures, 2014, and An Introduction to the Old Testament, The Canon and Christian Imagination by Walter Brueggemann, and Tod Linafelt, 2011).
