Kings and Messiahs: Reconsidering Kingship in the Hebrew Bible, Judaism, and Christianity
Professor Garrett Galvin will be speaking in Prof. Andrew Davis’s Book of Kings course.
Prof. Galvin's lecture will expand our view of kingship in ancient Israel by adding the more positive perspectives of Chronicles and Psalms to the negative assessments of the Book of Kings. Since Israelite kingship is foundational for Jewish and Christian understandings of messiah, his expanded view will help us rethink some of the assumptions that lie behind the concept in each tradition.
