Introduction to the First Testament
RL 200 — Fall 2009
last update 06 November 2009
Course Schedule (9/01–12/10/2009)
Nota Bene:
  1. A close reading of the primary (i.e., the Bible) texts assigned for class discussion is the first priority for class preparation.
  2. This syllabus may be revised upon consultation with the class and as circumstances demand.
  3. Reading assignments vary for different weeks of the course; some are heavier and other weeks are lighter. I encourage you to read ahead during the lighter weeks to make it easier on yourself when the reading schedule is more demanding.
I: TOOLS FOR FIRST TESTAMENT STUDY
II: THE ANCIENT NEAR EASTERN CONTEXT OF THE FIRST TESTAMENT
III: A CHOSEN PEOPLE, A COVENANT NATION
IV: THE WRITINGS: WISDOM & WORSHIP
