Reading Hebrew Narrative

OLDT 0651 (3)

Narrative is a primary literary genre within the Hebrew Bible. This course will examine the creativity, artistry, and literary features characteristic of Hebrew narrative using texts like the book of Ruth and the Joseph story as case studies. Students will gain an understanding of how theology is communicated through the content and composition of Hebrew narrative and an appreciation of the relevance of narrative to contemporary Christian life and teaching/ preaching ministry. Knowledge of Biblical Hebrew is beneficial but not essential. Prerequisite: BIBL 0501. Recommended: OLDT 0511.
