Twelfth Century Literal Bible Commentaries: Comparing Jewish And Christian, Devorah Schoenfeld Dec 2013

Twelfth Century Literal Bible Commentaries: Comparing Jewish And Christian, Devorah Schoenfeld

Theology: Faculty Publications and Other Works

In the twelfth century, both Jewish and Christian Bible commentators began to emphasize literal, or historical, or contextual, approaches to interpreting scripture. These commentators wrote predominantly line‐by‐line commentaries that focused the reader's attention on linguistic questions in the biblical text. There was also a renewed interest in seeing the Bible in its own terms rather than exclusively through the lens of earlier midrashic or patristic commentaries, although those continued to play an important role. These developments happened at the same time for both Christian and Jewish scholars, who were often in conversation with each other about how ...

Oh! The Places You'll Go: Avenues For Mapping In Religious Studies, Kim Vilimas Jan 2013

Oh! The Places You'll Go: Avenues For Mapping In Religious Studies, Kim Vilimas

Undergraduate Honors Theses

The reason for this work, and for my passion for this area of study, can be traced back to a class I took with my now-advisor simply entitled 'Christian Scriptures.' Some students were under the impression that the class was going to be some sort of church study group--this couldn't have been farther from the truth! Instead what followed was a wonderfully critical engagement with the realities by the early Christian communities and how they related to their world.


The Awakening Of Knowledge In The Heart Of Egypt: An Exegesis Of Exodus 7:1-5, Andrew Krawtz Jan 2013

The Awakening Of Knowledge In The Heart Of Egypt: An Exegesis Of Exodus 7:1-5, Andrew Krawtz

Global Tides

Exodus 7:1-5 is the fourth reiteration of God’s commands to Moses regarding Pharaoh and the Israelites, with the others being in Exod 3, 4:21-23, and 6:1-13. With these passages and the resulting plagues, readers have raised questions regarding God’s powerfulness and good nature.

My proposed answer to these concerns lies in the focus of this passage, which is ...
