« back to classes page
This course introduces students to the scholarly study of Biblical texts as a way of exploring their enduring significance. We are separated from the Bible by language, time, culture, and by our own assumptions about what the Bible says, we will use various scholarly approaches to read the biblical texts in a way that honors their unique, original meaning. We will ask the following of selected passages: What does the text say in its literary context? What did the text mean in its context? Why is the text important to us today as we reflect upon the Bible’s continuing theological relevance?
