Scripture Study: Wisdom Literature

Sept. 10, 24 | Oct. 8, 22 | Nov. 5, 12 | Dec. 3, 2024

In a famous song from Fiddler on the Roof, Tevye sings “Tradition.” Before tradition, there was wisdom. What was wisdom? It was the understanding of how a person with faith lived in a changing world—an ancient need, a current need. How do we live in a world with many and diverse intellectual perspectives? Learning from the past is a clue to the present.

We will study three books from different moments in the history of wisdom: The Wisdom of Solomon, The Wisdom of Ben Sira (Ecclesiasticus) and one of Philo’s essays.

Join us as we study the past to find a way to the future!

Instructor: Fr. Steve Hurd, SJ is co-director of the Internship in Spiritual Companionship and a popular retreat director at Manresa.

This course is offered onsite (space limited to 16) or via Zoom. Instructions for Zoom meetings will be emailed to registered participants prior to each session.
