Understanding the Bible: An Introduction to the Language and Literature of Scripture (part 2 of 3)
Part 2: This seminar is shaped around the two "testaments" of Scripture, particularly the kinds of literature found in both, and the rules governing the understanding of them. Bill will look at the Old Testament genres of law, history, poetry, and prophecy, and investigate forms such as parable, gospel, epistle, and apocalypse from the New Testament. He will also introduce the theological uniqueness of various parts of Scripture, while weaving throughout the session the theological unity of Scripture in the themes of creation, covenant, and redemption.
