Anathea Portier-Young on War in the Old Testament and Healing for Soldiers Today

Dr. Anathea Portier-Young is Associate Professor of Old Testament at Duke University Divinity School. She has studied and taught on the subject of violence in the Old Testament, as well as published on Jewish responses to violence in the Second Temple Period (Apocalypse Against Empire Theologies of Resistance in Early Judaism). In this brief video Portier-Young explores the possibility of finding meaning in biblical depictions of war and lament, including for today’s soldiers who seek healing from the trauma of modern day conflict.
