Along with Job and Ecclesiastes, the Book of Proverbs is one of the key Wisdom books of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. It is often approached as a random collection of sayings with practical advice about the good life. However, when examined as a whole, Proverbs offers a much richer understanding of the meaning of wisdom throughout the Bible and in our own lives. This course uses a combined lecture and seminar format with plenty of time for discussion and questions.
Please note: Although this course was listed in the Sept-Dec 2023 Calendar, it will not be running this term. You may be interested in Ecclesiastes and the Meaning of Life instead.
