The Hebrew Bible, known to Jews as the Tanakh and to Christians as the Old Testament, is the basis of our tradition of monotheism as well as the main avenue by which the ethics and teachings of the Hebrew spirit… entered Western civilization. In these lectures, eminent scholar Lawrence H. Schiffman discusses how that collection came into being and how it was passed down and interpreted throughout the ages. He provides details on how this tradition developed into the basis of Judaism and Christianity and how it continues to mold our society and culture today. 2008.
