Covenant and Creation: God in Relation BIB643

Instructor: Covenant and Creation: God in Relation BIB643

Creation and covenant — two themes of decisive significance in the Bible — help to describe God in relation to God’s world and God’s people. These themes also provide the structure for this course in Old Testament and biblical theology. Each of the themes embraces both diversity and complexity. The Old Testament will occupy most of our attention to covenant and creation, but we will reach into the New Testament and Christian confession as well. To speak of God in relation is necessarily to speak of Jesus Christ, so we will. Class sessions will include assigned readings from the Bible and from secondary literature, including feminist and Jewish texts. (MDiv 1, 3; MACF 1; MATPS 1)
