This Lecture: Study the contents of the Torah - the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Then consider two kinds of responses to the text - the religious perspective that regards it as a repository of eternal truths, and the historical-critical perspective that approaches the text with the tools of the scholar. The Course: Throughout history, religious expression has been an essential human activity, influencing the development of civilizations. Humanity's religions are grounded in their sacred texts - foundational writings that crystallize the principles and vision of the faiths, forming the basis of belief and action. These richly informative lectures reveal a global legacy of faith, thought, and spirituality. All Lectures: 1. Reading Other People's Scriptures 2. Hinduism and the Vedas 3.
