JWST350 - WISDOM IN THE HEBR BIBLE

What does God want from us? Why are we here? How can we make the most of our existence? In this course we will explore how the Bible answers above questions and what this can tell us about the human condition during biblical times. Students will read select passages in the Book of Proverbs, Job and Qohelet (Ecclesiastes) in conjunction with ancient Near Eastern texts. We will learn how ancient sages faced the uncertainties of life and the fleeting nature of human existence.¦
