Five Books of Torah
Lecture no. 8 from the course: Sacred Texts of the World
Taught by Professor Grant Hardy | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Study the contents of the Torah—the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Then consider two kinds of responses to the text—the religious perspective that regards it as a repository of eternal truths, and the historical-critical perspective that approaches the text with the tools of the scholar.
