Daniel and Apocalyptic Literature

— OLDT 0613 (3)

A literary, interpretive, and theological study of the book of Daniel with special focus on the apocalyptic genre, the socio-historical milieu of the apocalyptic movement, the employment of different reading strategies, and guidelines for interpretation. Using specific examples, the ultimate goal is to provide tools and ideas for appropriating the message of Daniel to our postmodern human and ecclesiastical context. Students are encouraged to engage themselves in bridging the two worlds―the biblical world and the world of today―by paying due attention to the timely and timeless aspects of the text. Prerequisite: BIBL 501. Recommended: OLDT 511.
