The course will involve close-reading of the Hebrew Text of the Book of Zechariah. Secondary readings in historical-critical studies of Zechariah will be required and students will be asked to evaluate critically these studies (including newer commentaries in English and German). Zechariah’s place in recent analysis of the Book of the Twelve will also be examined. Finally, students will be exposed to pre-critical reading of Zechariah and the hermeneutical issues related to Zechariah’s use in the New Testament and in Jewish and Christian Interpretation. Seminar format. Class participation, major paper.
