Course description: Israelite history from 400 BC to the Fall of Jerusalem to the Romans AD 66-70 presents an intriguing backdrop for surveying the extra-canonical literature. The gradual finalization of the Hebrew canon of scripture provides a basis for understanding the categories of Apocrypha, Pseudepigrapha, Septuagint, and the Dead Sea Scrolls.
