Scriptural Interpretation in Ancient Israel: Inner-Biblical Exegesis

David Andrew Teeter


An examination of the forms, methods, and aims of scriptural interpretation within the Hebrew Bible itself. Sessions will combine consideration of recent scholarship on "inner-biblical exegesis" with close readings of biblical texts (narrative, legal, prophetic, apocalyptic, hymnic) in Hebrew. Note: Two years of Biblical Hebrew strongly recommended.
