The Society’s mission is to foster biblical scholarship and does not hold any denominational or confessional stance, though many of our members are religious leaders.

Feature Essays

The Book of Job and the Problem of Suffering on the Streets of Deadwood
By Karl Jacobson

Karl Jacobson takes a look at the HBO series Deadwood, and finds similarities between it and the Book of Job on the question of human suffering. His essay includes reading selections from Job, classroom discussion questions, and a youtube video link.

The Crucifixion of Jesus in Films and in the Gospels
By Jeff Staley, PhD

Jeff Staley takes us to the movies, where he explores how this powerful medium has presented Jesus' death in very different ways. Contrasts with the gospel texts and the historical record will help students (and teachers) view these films with a critical eye.
