Israel: Land and Nature

197D Israel: Land and Nature

The Bible was written by farmers and shepherds, to farmers and shepherds using the language of agriculture and nature.  A student may not appreciate this language living in New York City.  This class will concentrate on the phrase “the land of milk and honey,” the Feasts of the Lord, the agricultural and weather cycle, and the plants, trees, animals, and birds of the Bible.
