BLIT 601 - The Ancient World


3 hours
This course focuses on the historical, philosophical, political, cultural, and social contexts in which and to which the Biblical texts were written. Particular attention is given to the comparative study of selected topics (from either the Ancient Near East or the Greco-Roman world) with reference to either the Old Testament or the New Testament. Included are the critical reading and evaluation of primary sources from the respective era, which are appropriated in the exegetical study of selected Biblical passages. This course may be repeated with a different subtitle. GR
