The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is the largest U.S. exchange program offering opportunities for students and  recent graduates to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and primary and secondary school teaching worldwide. The program currently awards approximately 1,800 grants annually in all fields of study, and operates in more than 155 countries worldwide.


During their grants, Fulbright scholars will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think. Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact with their hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.

God and Genocide in the Old Testament

Tue, 04/15/2014 - 4:11pm
Tuesday, April 15, 2014 7:00 PM - 9:15 PM

The Socratic Club at OSU will sponsor a debate on the topic “God and Genocide in the Old Testament” on Tuesday, April 15, at 7 p.m. in Gilfillan Auditorium on the OSU campus.  The speakers are Professors Richard Hess and Tracy M. Lemos. 

The issue they will debate is whether the God of the Old Testament is a God of love and mercy or whether His command to the Hebrews to exterminate men, women, and children that belong to the Canaanite nations show him to be a violent God who favors one nation over another.  Could a God of love command the destruction of an entire people group?  Our speakers will present opposing views.  Tracy Lemos will argue that the Old Testament depicts God as a violent deity.  Richard Hess will maintain that the cultural context of the time provides a rationale for what appears to be God’s unjust command of genocide.  

Richard S. Hess is Earl S. Kalland Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages at Denver Seminary.  Dr. Hess earned a PhD from Hebrew Union College. He is a member of the Committee on Bible Translation for the New International Version and serves as Old Testament and archaeology editor for the forthcoming NIV Study Bible. The author of eight books, Dr. Hess has done postdoctoral research at universities in Chicago, Jerusalem, Cambridge, Sheffield, and Münster, and has held National Endowment for the Humanities, Fulbright, and Tyndale House (Cambridge) postdoctoral fellowships and grants.  He has lectured before more than one hundred scholarly societies, universities, and colleges.

T. M. Lemos is Assistant Professor of Hebrew Bible at Huron University College, an Anglican seminary in London, Ontario, and a member of the graduate school faculty of Western University.  She received her B.A. from Brown University (Phi Beta Kappa) and her Ph.D. with distinction from Yale University. Her first book, Marriage Gifts and Social Change in Ancient Palestine: 1200 BCE to 200 CE, was published by Cambridge University Press, and she has published articles on a variety of topics in top-tier journals in biblical studies and religious studies. She is currently working on her second book, which will address violence in ancient Israel.

The debate will be videotaped and posted at a later date for viewing on the Socratic Club’s YouTube page.  More than 20 previous Socratic Club debates may be viewed online at http://www.youtube.com/user/orstsocraticclub
