Course Description:
According to Robert Alter, Ecclesiastes (Qohelet) is one of the most peculiar books of the Bible. On the surface, it describes life as a meaningless, frustrating attempt to find happiness in wisdom, work, riches, and life itself— which ultimately ends in death for everyone. But underneath the surface, Ecclesiastes provides a way to cope with the uncertainties of life! For the person who embraces Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah, Ecclesiastes provides a vital perspective on the absurdities of this world and how to respond to them. In this course we will seek to understand how to get the most out of this most interesting book of the Bible. We will also see how this book may have been in the mind of Paul in some of his most well-known writings.
