Judaism in the Time of Jesus
RELI 312
Spring 2007 not offered

This course will include a close reading of select Jewish writings composed between the formation of the Hebrew Bible (ca. 400 B.C.E.) and the parallel rise of rabbinic Judaism and early Christianity (ca. 100 C.E.). Readings will include the Old Testament apocrypha, the Dead Sea Scrolls from Qumran, Philo and Josephus. Attention will be given to the creativity of these writings, their common setting in times of oppression and their place in the religious heritage of Judaism and Christianity.
