Taught by Professor Grant Hardy | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
In approaching the sacred texts of Judaism, learn the dramatic history of the Aleppo Codex, a historically significant copy of the Tanakh (the Hebrew Bible). Track the origins of the Tanakh and its constituent sections—the Torah, the Prophets, and the Writings—and grasp how the Tanakh became the focus of Jewish identity.
