Biblical Studies

BLST 610 Pentateuch: The Way of the Torah (3)

This course represents an opportunity to take a journey through the books of Genesis to Deuteronomy. Along the way we encounter the texts and traditions which have shaped biblical faith down to the present-day stories of heroes and villains, of creation and destruction, and of promise and deceit. Later interpretations of the Pentateuch are explored in an attempt to discover how subsequent traditions have come to view the way of the Torah.

BLST 714 Psalms: The Poetry of Prayer (3)

This course offers students an encounter with the vitality of the Israelite Psalms tradition. An exploration of various critical approaches to the study of these texts is accompanied by an investigation of the ways in which the Psalms have served as a resource for subsequent theological, literary, and liturgical traditions.
