Nations have attacked, conquered and occupied other nations throughout history.
A four-part class, part of the Relevant Religion Series sponsored by Vanderbilt Divinity School, will start with Joshua’s conquest of Canaan as documented in the Old Testament and then ask hard questions.
The “Conquest and Occupation: Joshua and His Successors” class begins on March 13 and continues on March 20, 27 and April 3. Meetings will be from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Scarritt-Bennett Center, 1008 19th Ave. S.
The cost is $50 for all four classes.
The class will be led by Douglas A. Knight, professor of Hebrew Bible and director of the Center for the Study of Religion and Culture at Vanderbilt.
The Relevant Religion Series, co-sponsored by the Scarritt-Bennett Center, is designed to highlight the relevance of religion to daily life.
