#9: What Bible? Scripture, Canonization & Interpretation in the Second Temple Period

In this episode, I discuss:

  • The different biblical texts discovered at Qumran
  • The nature of “Scripture” during the Second Temple period
  • The process of canonization and why “canon” can mean something different for Jews and for Christians
  • The importance of interpretation for a “Scripturized” Bible
  • And as a special bonus, learn about the Masoretes! (Who were they, and what did they do?)

As always, I look forward to your questions and comments!
