    In the first week of the free online course “The Bible’s Prehistory, Purpose and Political Future” (see below for details), I examine the larger geopolitical context of Israel’s place on the “land bridge” connecting the centers of civilization....

    A new phenomenon is changing the public face of university education, making first-rate courses from the world’s best universities available to all, wherever they live. The phenomenon is often subsumed under the umbrella term “Massive Open Online Course” (MOOC). One of the leaders in the new realm of MOOC courses is Coursera, which reaches millions of students of all ages across the globe. This year Dr. Jacob L. Wright was selected to teach for Coursera one of its first courses on religion—and its very first on the Hebrew Bible as a whole. Titled “The Bible’s Prehistory, Purpose and Political Future,” the course is offered through the prestigious Emory University, which is world-renowned for its graduate programs in Biblical Studies (the largest in the USA).


    ....This new course on the Bible is free, and enrollment is open to everyone. Beginning May 26, it runs for six weeks. You can take it for credit and a diploma, or you can just watch the lectures at leisure and take the quizzes for fun, without anyone knowing how well you did—or didn’t do.
