In this course, you will come alongside a panel of IBC faculty members as they discuss the dynamics of Jewish and Greek thought on life, death, and the afterlife. You will learn about Hades, the Greek realm of the dead, and how Greek-speaking Jews used this term to translate the Hebrew word Sheol. Other topics include the origin of the universe, resurrection in Jewish thought, the Logos, angels, and ongoing consciousness in the afterlife. This course will take you on a journey through Israel’s Scriptures, Homer, Greek philosophy, Jewish apocryphal literature, the Gospels, Paul, Roman history, and more!
