Dr. Eliyahu Lizorkin-Eyzenberg
Professor of Ancient Cultures and Head of School
This course invites the person brought up in Western theological traditions to reread the Holy Bible through the perspective of the men and women who lived in the Biblical past. Insights are gleaned by looking deeper into the context, the original languages, and the surrounding cultures of these Ancient texts. Be ready to have the traditional interpretations of familiar passages discussed and often challenged to their core. The suggested alternative interpretations will be more consistent with the historical background and a more natural reading of the text. Prepare to be pleasantly surprised as you uncover previously unseen gems in God's Word.
