Course Description

Who was King David? Was he a real figure or the stuff of legends? While the literature of the Hebrew Bible portrays the majesty of King David, it also portrays David as a hero, charmer, rogue and scoundrel. Further access to David is possible through later interpretive literature and archaeology. In this course we will examine the various portrayals of David in text, archaeology and later interpretive traditions.
