Episode: Proverbs is one of the most misunderstood books in the Old Testament. It's often treated as a self-help guide or as a collection of promises. Dominick Hernández challenges us to understand the literary qualities of Proverbs, as well as its function within the biblical canon. The episode also talks about some of the personal experiences that shape Hernández's reading of Proverbs. The episode also focuses on the culminating significance of the "warrior woman," or "woman of valor" in Proverbs 31, and other insights from his recent book Proverbs: Pathways to Wisdom (Abingdon, 2021).
Guest: Dr. Dominick Hernandez was the Assistant Professor of Old Testament Interpretation at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Since recording the podcast, Dominick has accepted a job as associate professor of Old Testament at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University. He completed his MDiv from Princeton Theological Seminary and PhD in Hebrew Bible at Bar-Illan University in Israel. He’s the author of Illustrated Job in Hebrew (Glossa House) and a book that we’ll discuss today called Proverbs: Pathways to Wisdom (published by Abingdon Press).
