Description: 

The focus of the course for 2010 will be on that part of the Hebrew Bible called “Wisdom literature.”  After a consideration of the nature of Hebrew poetry as a vehicle for expression, we will examine the books of Job and Ben Sira (Sirach) in greater depth.  A major theme of the course will be the understanding of creation as a locus for speaking about divine revelation, understood differently in the various wisdom traditions.  Lectures and discussion.  Short written assignments during the course and a final paper.  Prerequisite: Old Testament I or equivalent.

Students are expected to read and respond to the books of Proverbs, Job, and Sirach before the beginning of the course.  After enrolment, see the on-line draft course outline for further details.
