Hebrew Exegesis: Ezekiel BIB632H

Instructor: Hebrew Exegesis: Ezekiel BIB632H

Students will study the book of Ezekiel, with attention to linguistic analysis and historical, literary, and theological questions. A close study of selected passages from the Hebrew text will be accompanied by the use of language resources to assist in translation and explication. Students will use knowledge of Hebrew (and Greek) to reflect on the theology and meaning of the book of Ezekiel. Further, this course will expose students to a wide spectrum of methods of interpretation used in biblical studies, both standard ones and those regarded as cutting edge and recent in their development or integration into the field of biblical studies. Particular attention will be given to the book’s implications for contemporary issues of theology and faith. Prerequisites: see the beginning of this section. (MDiv 1, 3)
