About the Course

Selected early Jewish and rabbinical texts are studied. We focus on texts from the Dead Sea Scrolls, Mishnah, Tosefta, Midrashim, and the Babylonian as well as the Palestinian Talmud. Early principles for text interpretation such as pesher, midrash, pardes, florilegia, are in focus which involves analysis of texts in which these text interpretation principles are used. The course provides you with the knowledge and tools needed to carry out a critical study of these texts and guides you in the explanation and analysis of selected pericopes. The course also touches on the importance of knowledge of these principles of interpretation for the understanding of exegesis of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament as well as for Jewish-Christian relations.
