Year One – Course: CBS 100 Old Testament Foundations: Genesis through Kings
The first year of study is a complete introduction to the foundational books of the Old Testament and their important historical, interpretive, and theological questions. Students will learn the interpretive and exegetical methods of encountering the biblical texts by engaging in a comprehensive study of the Pentateuch (Torah) and the Deuteronomic history or “historical” works of the Old Testament. Students read major portions of the assigned biblical books as well as secondary sources that provide historical, cultural, religious, and literary insights into the scriptural texts – including careful study of the most significant geography of biblical lands from the eighteenth century BC to the sixth century BC.
