Poetic Books (2 ECTS)

Description

This course will introduce the student to two aspects of the Poetic Books: poetry and wisdom. Poetry is the structure and delivery of the literature. The course will examine the ability of poetry to communicate at the emotional level and the place of poetry in communicating biblical themes. Wisdom is the thematic category of the literature. It focuses on the ancient pursuit of wisdom in Israel and looks at the genre, content, and social context of the wisdom writings. This course will examine themes that run throughout the wisdom tradition and the ways these themes develop and change in successive wisdom writings. The course will also consider the ways wisdom writings helped to shape the New Testament and continue to influence the church today.
