Advanced Biblical Hebrew 3: Dreams and Dreamers in the Bible

Dreams and Dreamers in the Bible

What did dreams mean to ancient Israelites? Our class will explore the original Hebrew texts recounting some of the most memorable dream stories in the Bible. But we’ll also dig deeper to discover what dreams meant to neighboring Near Eastern cultures. And in the process, we’ll gain a deeper understanding of what dreams mean to us today.

We’ll begin the course with a visual overview of the dream worlds of Israel’s ancient neighbors in Egypt, Mesopotamia and Syria, visiting the people, places and texts that influenced Israelite thinking about dreams and their interpretation. Then we’ll translate selected passages from Genesis and other Biblical books to see how dreams influenced ancient Jewish thinking in everything from prophecy to politics.

This course will also be available live online or via full video recording.
