The Miscellaneous Books of the Bible
To: 23 September 2019
While the first two divisions of the Hebrew Bible – the Tanakah – are unified by a continuous narrative thread, the same cannot be said for the Khetuvim or ‘Writings.’
As the name suggests, this vague term reflects the diverse character of material collected in this third and final section, which includes wisdom literature, sacred poetry, apocalyptic prophecy and more.
In this course, we will study a selection from a number of these books, including Ruth, Esther, Song of Songs, Ecclesiastes, Job, Ezra and Nechemiah.
