Course Details

‘Can God really dwell on earth?’ asks King Solomon, at the dedication of the first Jerusalem temple. We will discuss various biblical answers to that question, as we explore ancient Israelite notions of divine presence (and divine absence). We will also consider the impact of the temple’s destruction in 586 BCE, and the consequences for the formation of the Hebrew Bible. No previous knowledge is required – just a willingness to engage with biblical texts from a fresh perspective.
This course can be completed in your own time, although we recommend setting aside 2-3 hours a week.
Each week will focus on some key biblical texts.  There will also be video, audio and written materials for you to engage with, and forums for you to share reflections and ask questions.
There will be two live online Q&As (dates to be confirmed). If you can’t join these discussions live, they will be recorded for you to watch at your convenience.
This course is intended for those who wish to explore the Bible in greater depth.  We will be looking at its original historical context, but also discussing our own responses to the material.
