Introduction to Wisdom Literature

The Wisdom Literature course I am teaching this semester at Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, has begun.  Our first book was the Book of Proverbs.  One amazing discussion was around the section attributed to Agur (chapter 30).  Scholars, such as Purdue, argue that these verses originated in an 8th BCE migratory tribe in the Arabian peninsula.  And yes, it’s in the Bible!  Imagine, wisdom, gathered, collected and refined under the Arabian night sky long, long before God brought you and me into being.  For more on the course, Theo712.wordpresss.com
