The Pentateuch

Exploring the five books of Moses through historical background, diachronic and synchronic studies, and theological interpretation, with particular attention given to integrating these methods toward a better understanding of the Pentateuch itself or the role of the Pentateuch in Biblical Theology.

In 2019 we will have the first of a two-year series on the dating of Pentateuchal sources P (2019) and D (2020). For 2019 Benjamin Kilchör (Assistant Professor of Old Testament at STH Basel) will lay out the agenda for both meetings. Two additional speakers will be invited, with responses for each.
