1. to explore the Bible as a literary work, including elements of characterization, and use of figurative language and various genres
2. to identify the biblical allusions in literature
3. to understand the historical and cultural heritage of the Bible.
Because of the numerous biblical allusions found in the works of Western literature, it is commonly believed that students cannot enjoy and understand Western literature to its fullest without some knowledge of the Bible. While this course is designed to help students overcome the aforementioned challenge (familiarizing students with bible characters and stories), the Old and New Testaments will be studied for their own unique value. Students will be introduced to the various biblical genres such as narrative, poetry, prophecy, parable, and epistle. Moreover, key biblical concepts such as covenant, sin, judgment, justification, sanctification, Messiah, and eternal life will be introduced.
