Open Yale: Introduction to the Old Testament

open-yale-courses-logoHave you ever wanted to study at Yale? Now you can. For free. And at your own pace.

Yale has put quite a few of their world class lectures online for anyone to use. They have quite a few courses with more being added. You can see the complete list here.

I’ve always been interested in studying the Old Testament but have never had access to a quality source. With Open Yale courses, this is no longer a problem.

This course examines the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible) as an expression of the religious life and thought of ancient Israel, and a foundational document of Western civilization. A wide range of methodologies, including source criticism and the historical-critical school, tradition criticism, redaction criticism, and literary and canonical approaches are applied to the study and interpretation of the Bible. Special emphasis is placed on the Bible against the backdrop of its historical and cultural setting in the Ancient Near East.

The course is taught by Prof. Christine Hayes:
