I teach the following courses at the Atlantic School of Theology. In addition to covering the basics for graduate-level survey and language requirements, I try to offer a representative rotation of courses from the three parts of Tanakh: the Law, the Prophets, and the Writings.
Hebrew Bible (Fall 2016): One of two requirements in the Biblical Foundations series, this course surveys the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and explores its historic role as Jewish and Christian Scripture.
The Book of Genesis (Winter 2017): A study of the histories of Genesis that seeks to understand the book’s foundational role as scripture from antiquity down through the present day.
Psalms in Interpretation (Winter 2017): An overview of current research on the shape and shaping of the Psalter, and a seminar on the reception history of about a dozen particular psalms.
