This course builds upon undergraduate introductions to the Christian Bible and acquaints students with various approaches to the Sacred Scripture as described in the Pontifical Biblical Commission’s document, “The Interpretation of the Bible in the Church.” The course investigates the nature of Hebrew poetry. The literary, historical, and theological dimensions of the Old Testament will be disclosed through an exegetical study of selected texts from the prophetic and sapiential literature. There is a special emphasis placed upon the theological message of these texts.
