BIB 532 - Old Testament 1: The Torah & Histories
The Old Testament is vast, spanning from the creation of the cosmos to the exile and return of God’s people Israel. In this course, we examine the fundamental texts of the Hebrew faith, called the “Torah” and the “Histories.” The Torah consists of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. The Histories cover Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 & 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Ezra and Nehemiah. The course focuses on the narrative and theology of the Torah and Histories in the quest to understand Judeo-Christian origins, holiness, obedience and disobedience.
