Hebrew: Advanced – Biblical Sacrifice in the Hebrew Bible and Ancient Near East (Winter 2021)

Judaism’s sacrificial services ended nearly 2,000 years ago when the Jerusalem Temple was destroyed by the Romans. But for the millennium before that, sacrifice of animal and other food offerings formed the centerpiece of daily practice. What was offered and why? What ritual items were used and who used them? Finally, did human sacrifice play a role in Biblical Israel as it did in other Near Eastern cultures? We’ll explore these and other questions as we delve into the Biblical Hebrew texts describing the mysterious (and sometimes darker) practices of our early faith.
