Description

In this series, Dr. Bruce Waltkeu00a0aims to teach youu00a0how to read biblical narrative and to understand narrative theology. He appliesu00a0this knowledge to the so-called Deuteronomistic history and Ruth, with special focus on the books of Judges, Ruth, and Samuel. Since these books are concerned with the question of leadership in Israel, and more specifically with the question of kingship, these books offer a profound insight into God's ideals of leadership. In addition, the course aims to familiarize you with the structure and basic content of Deuteronomy through Kings. Lectures include:
