Bible Stories with Jill Carroll (4 Week Course)
The Bible —which includes both Jewish and Christian sacred texts—is arguably one of the most influential books ever written, and certainly in the Western world. Believers hold to its words and teachings as divinely inspired for faith and practice. For non-believers, however, The Bible is an important source of stories that weave in and out of Western culture, informing how we think about who we are, why we are here, and how we should live. Finally, The Bible is the origin of many enduring literary allusions, tropes and symbols, and knowing these is an important part of cultural literacy in the West. In this course, we will read and discuss several important Bible stories from the Hebrew Bible and from the Christian New Testament with a view toward understanding these timeless stories and the ways in which they direct and inform Western culture. (Readings will be assigned a week prior to the class beginning.)
