OT102Old Testament Foundations II

OT102 : Old Testament Foundations II (3 Credit)
Academic Year : 2022
About this course

OT Foundations I and OT Foundations II together form an introduction to the Old Testament. These two courses aim: (i) to introduce the Old Testament books, and the historical and cultural contexts in which they originated; (ii) to help students reflect on how to apply the Old Testament in the modern world, and to their own lives. Throughout, the Old Testament is interpreted as part of Christian Scripture, and out of a conviction that Christians cannot afford to neglect this first and larger part of God’s Word. Though questions relating to history and the ancient Near Eastern context will not be ignored, the main emphasis is on the meaning, theology and application of the text. OT Foundations II covers most of the Prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Hosea and Amos), the Psalms, and the Wisdom Literature.

 OT 102 will be taught by blended learning, using a mixture of recorded lectures and live class sessions. It may be necessary to conduct all class sessions online.
