Text: The Chalice Introduction to the Old Testament
Course Description: In this course we will be taking a cursory review of the Old Testament, or also known as the Hebrew Bible, or the First Testament, or the Tanakh. For the purposes of this class, we will refer to this collection of books as The Old Testament, the commonly used term in Christianity. We will review how the Old Testament was organized, who wrote it, to whom was it written, and when it finally became cannon. We will also review how to go about doing Biblical study learning the rubrics of hermeneutics, and how to apply Alexander Campbell’s own approach to Biblical interpretation. This course will last ten weeks and the students are expected to participate in the weekly online discussions. There will be a sermon due at the end of the term focusing on a book of the Old Testament that the student finds most interesting.
