Description

This course aims to examine the assumptions, history and variety of critical methods and perspectives brought to bear on the biblical texts in the modern period, to ask intelligent questions about the coherence and value of these methods, and in engaging critically with them to develop a methodology for biblical study that is both intellectually sustainable and consistent with the faith of the Church in respect of its Scriptures. Lectures include:

  • Introduction
  • Source Criticism
  • Form/Tradition Criticism
  • Tradition/Redaction Criticism
  • Rhetorical Criticism
  • Structuralism and Poststructuralism
  • Narrative (holistic) Criticism
  • Social Scientific Criticism
  • Feminist Criticism
  • Canonical Criticism
  • Using the hermeneutical and critical tools: The book of Jonah
  • 'How can I understand, unless someone explains it to me?' (Acts 8:30-31): The evangelical and Christian way ahead?
