Old Testament II: Prophets & Writings (BIBL301)
This course introduces the Prophets and the Writings and provides practice in the exegesis of texts in the Hebrew Bible. Primary concentration is on the texts of the English and Hebrew Bibles, although secondary literature is used as a resource. Attention is given to the content, history, and theology of prophecy and prophetic literature in Israel, along with the varied works that comprise the Writings. Consideration will be devoted to the significance of this literature for the work of the church today.
