This course orients students to the theology, literature, and key issues in the Old Testament. It reflects on questions of how Old Testament books are best read together as part of the Christian canon of Scripture, and their ability to shape Christian life and engagement with culture. After addressing key interpretive issues, the course explores the contents of the Old Testament with a focus on the historical context, literary shape, and theological and ethical dimensions of each book. At the end of the course, students should have a new appreciation for the Old Testament as an integrated but diverse whole, and for its status as a “living and active” word for the Christian journey.
