RILL to Host Course on Ancient Poetry: The Biblical Psalms
The ancient writers of the Near East poured out their hearts in their poetry, but they also relayed bits of wisdom, history, and politics. Rappahannock Community College’s Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning (RILL) will offer “Ancient Poetry: The Biblical Psalms,” on Tuesday, March 22, 29, and April 5 from 1 pm to 3 pm. Held in person on the Glenns campus and simultaneously through Zoom, Dr. Ken Wilbur will take you through the structure, themes, and art of the psalms.
Some psalms are private prayers, while others are clearly meant to be used in a worship setting with responses for the people to say, shout, or sing.
Ken Wilbur holds a Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible from Boston University (1994). His doctoral dissertation examines the difference between prose and poetry in ancient Hebrew. He has taught “An Introduction to the Old Testament” for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Virginia, as well as “Elementary Greek” for the Virginia University of Lynchburg. He served as the minister of Rappahannock Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Dunnsville, Virginia, for 35 years until his retirement in January 2022.
Advance registration, with a tuition payment of $35 is required. For more information on “Ancient Poetry” and other RILL courses, or to register, please call Brittany Abdul-Malik at 804-333-6707 or e-mail bjenkins@rappahannock.edu. You can also register at www.rappahannock.edu/rill.
