This unit offers a rare opportunity to study the Jewish Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha and the history of the period known as the Intertestamental period. This period saw important and noteworthy events and changes in thought over a span of 300 years before the Christian era which shaped the Jewish faith of the first century and the beginning of Christianity. The unit will introduce students to the literature of this period and attend to the ways in which Hebrew thought and faith changed and adapted to changed needs and how they influenced the shaping of early Christian faith, ethics and piety and continue to sway influence on us today.
