BIB 4200 - Bible Backgrounds

Credits: 3

This course will introduce you to the resources and methodological principles for studying and applying the finds of Bible backgrounds as an integral part of the hermeneutical process. Attention will be given to both Old Testament (ancient Near Eastern) and the New Testament (Jewish and Greco-Roman) backgrounds. As you compare the history, cultures, and literature of the biblical world, you will discover both similarities and differences and will evaluate their impact and role in the exegesis of the biblical text.
