RELG 2300 - Introduction to Judaism and the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament

Hours: 4
This introductory course will consist of two major components of the study of Judaism: a concentration on the stories of the ancient Israelites that come to us in the form of the Hebrew Bible/Christian Old Testament and the complex world of modern Judaism. The world of ancient Near Eastern literature will form the background of a discussion about the origins and development of early Jewish monotheism. The question of the “historicity” of Israel will also be considered as we study historical-critical methods for understanding ancient texts. Contemporary issues in the land of Israel-Palestine will be discussed and a visit to Temple Israel will be scheduled.
Notes: Except for Nursing majors, this course may be used as a substitute for the INST Reflection and Responsibility (INST 2200’s) requirement.
