TMOT 7014 The Core Narrative of the Old Testament: Genesis to Kings (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

A study of the Pentateuch and the Deuteronomistic History (Deuteronomy to Kings) through lectures, and sections in which students present an exegesis of important passages. Solid knowledge of these books is essential to understand the rest of the Bible. This course does not duplicate other introductions, for we read only Genesis through Kings (not the Prophets, Wisdom Literature, or Psalms), and a third of the class time is devoted to small sections, which are designed to sharpen exegetical and preaching skills.

Instructor(s): Michael Simone, S.J.
