TMOT 8554 The Book of Kings: Theology and Historiography (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This seminar will examine 1 and 2 Kings for what they tell us about ancient Israel’s theology and history. In terms of historiography, we will discuss the historical sources that underlie the text and how these sources have been arranged into a coherent narrative. In terms of theology, we will discuss theological convictions that shaped Israel’s understanding of its own history, and we will consider how those same convictions have in turns shaped subsequent communities of faith.
