Hebrew Exegesis: Writings BIB609H

Instructor: Hebrew Exegesis: Writings BIB609H

This course will introduce students who have taken a beginning course in Hebrew to translation and exegesis of selections from the Writings, particularly Lamentations and the Song of Songs. Students will gain familiarity with poetic devices of Biblical Hebrew and creative fluidity in rendering the poetry of the Hebrew originals in English translations that can preserve some level of the poetic artistry. Prominent in this course will be theological themes of suffering, hope, love, embodiment, and death. Prerequisites: see the beginning of this section. (MDiv 1, 3; MACF 1, 2)
