An introduction to the literature and thought of the Hebrew Bible, considered in the light of the historical contexts of its formation and its ongoing theological importance to the life and faith of the Church. The course, taught by Paul K.-K. Cho at Wesley Theological Seminary, is the second part of a year-long sequence and focuses on the Latter Prophets and the Writings. It takes seriously the history of the formation of the biblical literature, the canonical form(s) of the text, and the history of interpretation and reception. As such, the course surveys the history of ancient Israel, performs close analysis of key passages, and introduces diverse interpretative issues and viewpoints.
