F603 Fall 2019 The Making of the Scriptures
Wednesdays, 11:50–1:15, Oct. 23–Nov. 13
Four sessions
Instructor: John Rybicki

The texts within both the Hebrew and Christian scriptures were written over extended periods of time. Neither Jews nor Christians immediately canonized their sacred texts, and the development and ultimate selection of these texts is not fully documented or understood. Not all texts that were used, or were popular, were ultimately selected for inclusion. This course will examine a number of theories concerning the development of the TaNaKh (Hebrew Scriptures), various versions of the Septuagint, and the Christian scriptures to better understand the bibles that we use today. There is an optional bus trip to the Bible Museum on November 19. The course and bus trip are separate registrations. See 1019 to register for the bus trip.
See F602 for instructor information.
