REL 395 Samuel

The books of Samuel describe a number of significant transitions in the history of Israel. Methods of political rule are transformed, the religious structures must take this into account, and the relationships with other peoples are also altered. The text preserves many elements of a rich discussion of these matters as well as probing significant theological and familial matters in the lives of the main characters of the narrative. This course will provide students with the opportunity to explore and discuss this important text, with attention being given to the relevance of the traditions for modern readers.
