Description
Taken in the first semester of the Sophomore year, this course exposes students to the story and themes of salvation history providing them with a strong foundation in Christian Scriptures. Using both historical-critical and narrative methodologies, this course helps students read and utilize scripture for: a broader understanding of salvation history, literary significance, a call to biblical justice, personal faith enrichment, communal worship, and personal prayer. Specific themes explored are: Incarnation, Covenant, Discipleship, Kingdom, Justice and Church. This course both builds off of and contributes to the scriptural themes and narratives studied in other courses in the Theology Department.
