New Season: “The Problem of Good (and Evil)”

“By starting with the material culture of Israelite and Jewish communities, the authors bring women out of isolation and into their proper place as valuable contributors to the community.” —Cyndi Parker, owner and creative director of Narrative of Place

Introducing Hebraic Thought: A Biblical Philosophy of Truth

Gain a better understanding of the thought-world of the Bible with Introducing Hebraic Thought: A Biblical Philosophy of Truth (BI210). Hebraic thought, according to Dr. Dru Johnson, is the thinking, concepts, and practices that emerge consistently across the biblical literature from the Hebrew Bible into the New Testament. In this course, Dru Johnson looks at the philosophical tradition embedded in Scripture. He explores how the biblical writers communicated and described the marks of Hebraic thought. You’ll come away from the course with increased biblical literacy and fluency and a better appreciation of the intellectual tradition of the Bible.
