TMPS 8088 Calling out from the Depths: Jewish and Christian Interpretations of the Psalms (Fall: 1 )

Course Description

For centuries, Jews and Christians have turned to the Book of Psalms in times of joy and thanksgiving, and in times of sadness and lament. However, there have been far fewer opportunities for members of these two communities and others to explore these ancient poetic texts together as fellow spiritual seekers. What do we share in common? Where do we differ? How might reading these sources with people with different religious or ideological commitments impact our relationship with the text? This course will consist of six 2-hr meetings plus three 1-hr sessions specifically for STM students.

Schedule: Periodically

Instructor(s): Andrew Davis
Or Rose

Prerequisites: At least one course in Biblical Studies and one course in Theology. Pre-requisites can be taken at the undergraduate or graduate level.
