LIT 240 - Bible as Literature


Credit(s): 3

This course begins with the premise that the books of the Bible are literary and cultural documents written by men for men, not theological tracts written or inspired by God. Students will read and analyze these texts as an anthology of literature that includes history, poetry, letters, apocalyptic literature, mythological material, prophetic books, law, and other genres. Emphasis will be upon the First Testament or Hebrew Bible (the Tanakh) and Revelation. In addition, problems of textual authorship, translation, redaction, and interpolation will be introduced. Material covered will also include modern archaeology’s impact upon both biblical criticism and the historical accuracy of the biblical stories. (Spring Semester)
