Advanced Biblical Hebrew 3: Ancient Israel’s Power Politics: Prophets, Priests and Kings

This course was offered in Fall, 2017.

In an era of political turmoil, it’s informative (and perhaps comforting) to examine an ancient predecessor. Our class will review episodes from the centuries-long conflict between the three key branches of ancient Israel’s government: the monarchy, the prophets and priesthood. Our first session will survey the key players and their world as well as perspectives (and prejudices) of the Deuteronomistic historian/s who produced the stories. From there, we’ll translate and analyze one or more selected texts.
