About the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL)
The SBL was founded in 1880 and is an international academic membership organization for people who teach, study, or are interested in academic study of the Bible and its related contexts and literatures. 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 Essay

Teaching Gender in the Hebrew Bible
By Karla Bohmbach

Prof. Bohmbach introduces readers to biblical understandings of gender roles and demonstrates by a few examples how normative masculine and feminine identities are shaped or challenged in the biblical narratives.


Teaching the Bible with Art
By Lynn R. Huber and Dan W. Clanton Jr.

The history of art provides a rich tapestry of biblical interpretation that can stimulate and aid student discussion of specific biblical texts. Professors Huber and Clanton argue that study of artistic images inspired by the Bible can help students develop comfort with critical and observational skills that then transfer to the academic study of the Bible.
