Dear Students,

I am happy to invite you to the forth lesson of the course The Bible in Light of the Ancient Near East. This week's lesson deals with the theological and ideological implications of our comparative discussion thus far. The lesson is now available on your edX dashboard.

I would like to thank those who contributed to the forum assignment of lesson 3, and shared with us their impressions from reading Sumerian mythology.

Recommended preliminary reading for this lesson includes read the following biblical passages:

When reading, try to focus on the way the biblical god, and his relationship with foreign gods, are depicted in these passages. As usual, the links lead to King James Version, but you may use any translation and/ or commentary.

Good luck,
Dr. Nili Samet

Congratulations on completing this course, Scott Lord!
As you know, we started this course with a look at the 3rd century city of Dura Europos and the incredible diversity of early Christianity. Now, at the end of this course, in the 16th century, we see Jesuits and others advancing Christianity in new frontiers. Christianity would emerge as a global religion.
It has been our hope, in this course, to give a sense of the diversity of Christianity in the West. Our journey has taken us over 1500 years, and it has been our pleasure to lead that Journey.
We hope that the experience you've gotten from this course will help you throughout your future endeavors. We will always continue to be a team together, so let's not think of this as a parting, but rather as a new, joint beginning for wonderful learning lives in the future.
You can explore more of Yale's Coursera offerings here.
Thank you!

Vincent Ferrini

Professor Filreis was nearby at a family wedding and his blog, which is linked here, might be more self-explanatory than our correspondence. he quotes a poet that gave the first poetry reading I ever attended, although I had written to the poets Ethan Ayer and John Updike before that. The wedding Al went to was where we honeymoon vacation every year and I was there last month, so our blogs have very similar photos.

We hope you are enjoying Section 3 which features the case involving Khadija Ismayilova, an investigative journalist reporting on the Azerbaijan oil industry.

This week, we received the news on the death of Daphne Caruana Galizia, an investigative journalist from Malta. A harsh critic of the government, she was killed by a car bomb near her home. She wrote about her government's ties to Azerbaijan, and used the release of the Panama Papers to connect her government's leaders to bank accounts in Panama. The censoring of journalists and the Panama Papers are covered in the remaining two weeks. 

Next Wednesday, we will release section 4, "Press Freedom, Censorship, and Surveillance." In the meantime we hope you will continue to work through content and quizzes of the first three weeks of the course and that you will join or start the conversation on the discussion forum.

- Anya Schiffrin, Mihika Srivastava and the Course Team
