This seminar is an introduction to insights on how the Bible that we know today developed over time. Using the work of scholars over history, this course delves into the timeline, structure, and development of the Bible, as well as how that information helps us to interpret it for people thousands of years after the first words were penned. 

This is part 1 of a 2 part series. In particular, this course investigates Hebrew Scripture, commonly called the Old Testament. 

As a seminar format, participants are welcome to come an learn about the history of the Biblical texts themselves, how they developed into their current form, as well as a discussion on what constitutes “canon” and how that can both help and hinder our reading of these ancient texts. 

No pre-reading is necessary, as the date pulls closer, I will send out some material for interest, as well as compiling a reference library of works for further reading.
