Description

Where do we find ‘forgiveness’ in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament?

In a world in which genuine forgiveness seems as rare a commodity as ever, this symposium offers an opportunity to explore where and in what forms forgiveness may be found in ancient Hebrew texts which are foundational for Western religions and the cultures which they have influenced over the last two millennia. In the wake of renewed interest in forgiveness in antiquity and recent suggestions that it bears little resemblance to modern conceptions, our interest is to investigate the ways in which the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament itself conceptualizes forgiveness. How and in what ways does God forgive? Where if at all do we see reconciliation between people in the Old Testament and what does it look like? Join an international group of biblical scholars for a constructive conversation of critical relevance for communities of faith and cultures which find it difficult to forget and even harder to forgive.
