RELS 26738 - Hebrew Script.S in Judaism & Christianit

Course Credit: 1
(CLST, MENA)
THE HEBREW SCRIPTURES IN JUDAISM AND Judaism and Christianity are two rival cultural systems that developed out of the complex world of first-century Judaism, in part by interpreting and reinterpreting a sacred text known to Jews as the Tanakh and to Christians as the Old Testament. This course examines how these two traditions diverged through the first three centuries of the Common Era by analyzing significant concepts and practices (such as messiah, atonement, and the Sabbath) that each tradition derived from the Hebrew Scriptures. Some familiarity with the biblical texts would be desirable but not required. [R]
