God the Creator in the Old and New Testaments BIB630

Instructor: God the Creator in the Old and New Testaments BIB630

God created the heavens and the earth, as the Bible says in the first verse of Genesis. The Bible’s last book, Revelation, envisions a new heaven and a new earth. From beginning to end, the Bible speaks of God the Creator. In this course we will examine texts from different parts of the Old and New Testaments and texts from the ancient world beyond the Bible. Our consideration of God’s work in creation will include creation’s cosmic, natural, and political dimensions and the relationship between creation and redemption. We will also give some attention to aspects of God the Creator in Christian systematic or doctrinal theology. Prerequisites: Strange New World of the Bible 1 and 2. (MDiv 1; MATPS 1)
