Summary:

This course will combine close textual and exegetical analysis of the Hebrew Bible (Isaiah) with attention to methodology. These chapters of Isaiah are selected as they model well the transition from early literary-critical to form and redaction-critical exegesis, and newer canonical approaches. The time will be devoted to close reading of the Hebrew text informed by the spate of newer commentary treatments and secondary literature.
