Steven Collins, PhD

Description

Integrating biblical history into the histories of ancient Near Eastern kingdoms has often been generic and minimalistic, frequently emphasizing general cultural phenomena without substantive cause/effect correlations. This course identifies and details cause/effect synchronisms between biblical and ancient Near Eastern histories—Egypt, Hatti, Mittani, Assyria, Babylonia, and the Levant—as well as elements of cultural specificity embedded in the biblical narratives, all of which demonstrate the historical authenticity and veracity of the Old Testament, with particular focus on the Torah, Joshua, and Judges.
