BLIT 645 - Old Testament Theology


3 hours
An examination of the Old Testament as Scripture of the Christian Church in order to hear and understand the biblical testimony to God and his revelatory and reconciling work in the world. The history of the discipline is discussed, including various methods of doing biblical theology, such as: themes and ideas, history of salvation, literary approaches, cultural and sociological methods, and the Bible as canon. The course also contains an in-depth study of the major theological themes of the Old Testament, including covenant, grace, faithful response to God, sin and accountability, holiness, and hope for the future, as well as a reflective analysis of the theological role of the Scripture for today amid various and shifting cultural concerns. This course requires significant research and writing and may be repeated with a different subtitle. GR
