How old is the Old Testament? What concrete tools and methods do we have to determine when it was written? Owing to the little amount of clear evidence, there are many different theories for determining the age of the books of the Old Testament. This impressively wide-ranging monograph synthesises the results of recent research in this area and, above all, seeks to find objective answers regarding the age of the Old Testament writings. The authors set new standards in the study of the historicity of biblical texts that undoubtedly demand our attention.

The book of Ron Hendel and Jan Joosten: How Old Is the Hebrew Bible? A Linguistic, Textual, and Historical Study (Yale University Press, 2019) is presented by Beatrix Bíró , student of the Protestant Theological Institute.

Date and time: November 3, 2021 -- Wednesday 19.00. Location: Protestant Theological Institute - Room 205.

More information on the series: Since 2016, with the support of the Hilfswerk der Evangelischen Kirchen Schweiz (HEKS) and some other organisations, the book depository of the library of the Theological Institute has been continuously expanding with excellent reference books, presenting main trends, issues and problems of contemporary theology. We would like to bring these books to life, to bring them close to the public by talking about them. Informally, over a cup of tea. These events are open to anyone interested.

During the academic year 2021-2022, this series of events will be supported by the Hungarian National Talent Programme. A PDF version of the event poster can be downloaded from the right-hand sidebar.
