The Society of Biblical Literature is the largest
international association of scholars who teach and research the many fields
that make up biblical studies. SBL is an interdisciplinary, humanistic,
academic society that includes scholars of history, literature, archaeology,
anthropology, theology, and more.
For good reason, E.D. Hirsch’s Dictionary of Cultural Literacy places the Bible first in its list of
subject areas necessary for every education. Visit Bible Odyssey to understand why. There
you will find SBL members offering insight into a book whose cultural impact is
without peer—stretching from the ancient world to modern society.
I hope you read About SBL and its Mission Statement to
learn about the resources we offer scholars and the public. Join
us and support
the work we do together!
