Ecclesiastes and the “Vanity of Vanities”

Lecture no. 23 from the course: Understanding the Old Testament

Ecclesiastes and the “Vanity of Vanities”

Taught by Professor Robert D. Miller II | 25 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Grapple with the fascinating and elusive text of the book of Ecclesiastes. In the apparent bleakness of Qohelet’s words, grasp why many through the centuries have found the book depressing. With a careful and rigorous reading, plumb the verses for their deeper meaning: a singular vision of affirmation, reaching beyond the futility of human life to an authentic joy in the gifts of God.
