Ancient interpreters have their own distinctive ways of reading scripture. What can we learn from entering their world and seeing the Bible through their eyes? In this course, students will explore a variety of ancient biblical interpretation, both Jewish and Christian, gain familiarity with the principles of interpretation that lead to divergent readings, and ask critical questions about what makes a reading "faithful" or "good."
