Year 3

Year Three – Course: CBS 300 Old Testament: Exile and Restoration

In the third year of study, students continue building upon their understanding and use of the interpretive and exegetical methods of encountering the biblical texts learned in CBS 100 and 200, continuing with a comprehensive study of the Old Testament prophets, the People of God’s experience of the Babylonian Exile, and the post-exilic restoration of the land and faith of Israel.  Beginning with an intensive six-hour study and a book report on a scholarly monograph on methods of reading the Old Testament, students go on to read major portions of assigned biblical books as well as secondary sources that provide historical, cultural, religious, and literary insights into the primary texts including careful study of the geography of biblical lands from the eighth century to the first century BC.
