1 & 2 Chronicles
— OLDT 0524
Among the least read (and most misunderstood) books in the Old Testament are 1 & 2 Chronicles. Yet, we will discover in this course that this material has a vital message for the church and academia today. As the last books of the entire Hebrew Bible, Chronicles is uniquely positioned to provide what a prominent scholar refers to as 'one of the richest mines of spirituality in all Scripture.' The post-exilic period, when Chronicles was composed, witnessed the production of new kinds of literary and theological works. This course is centred on a close reading and analysis of 1 & 2 Chronicles, along with study of relevant secondary sources and class discussions. Prerequisite: BIBL 0501.
