THEO 470. Contemporary Biblical Interpretation

Theologians and biblical scholars have subjected the Bible to rigorous critical investigation since the rise of the historical-critical method in the 18th century.  This course examines the tools and methods used by contemporary scholars in their studies of the Bible, with an emphasis on more recent developments.  Students will learn to use the tools and methods of modern scholarship through the study of selected texts from the Hebrew Bible and Christian Scriptures.
