From Daniel to Jesus: Early Judaism in the Second Temple Period BIB536

Instructor: From Daniel to Jesus: Early Judaism in the Second Temple Period BIB536

The book of Daniel and the Dead Sea Scrolls were produced at a time of great interreligious and intercultural ferment. Many different approaches were taken within Jewish traditions during this era, which is known as the Second Temple Period: withdrawal, active and critical engagement, acceptance, and violent revolution. Daniel, the Dead Sea Scrolls, selections from the Apocrypha and the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha, the Septuagint, 1 Enoch, Philo, and Josephus all help us understand this largely unknown period that is so vital for interpreting the New Testament. (MDiv 1, 5)
