Academic Biblical Criticism is focused on investigating the Hebrew Bible, New Testament, and other religious texts from a historical perspective. Join us for secular discussion of the literature.
More specifically, by “Biblical Criticism” we mean:
“An umbrella term for those methods of studying the Bible that embrace two distinctive perspectives: the concern to avoid dogma and bias by applying a non-sectarian, reason-based judgment, and the reconstruction of history according to contemporary understanding. Biblical criticism uses the grammar, structure, development, and relationship of language to identify such characteristics as the Bible's literary structure, its genre, its context, meaning, authorship, and origins.”
