About this course

In this course, Dr. Heiser outlines the various figures and concepts behind the theology of two Yahweh figures in ancient Judaism. This ancient conception of a Godhead forms the backdrop for various New Testament passages. The course builds on Unseen Realm 101’s introduction to the two powers in the Hebrew Bible.

What you'll learn

After completing this course, you'll be able to:

  • Recognize how ancient Judaism believed in a second Yahweh figure.

  • Discern the idea of Jesus being God is not a novel, New Testament idea, but part of the history of Jewish theology about God.

  • Explain what the Targums are and why they’re valuable for both ancient Jewish theology and New Testament Christology.
