The Torah : Its Message and Application for our lives

This course has already started!

Course Description

This course is a study of the Torah (Genesis–Deuteronomy) from a literary (“close-reading”) perspective with the goal of discerning the theological message of the book. Special emphasis is given to its macro-structure, narrative analogies, and the literary context of the legal materials within the book for the purpose of addressing the question of the believer’s relationship to the law today.

 





Course Structure

The lessons will be held through a Zoom format, consisting of lectures and interactive discussions between all participants. There will be 10 three hour (with breaks) Live zoom lectures. Recordings will be available to registered students to watch multiple times during the time of the course and for six weeks after it ends. It won’t be possible to download video lectures to personal PC.

We cannot ensure the quality of zoom recordings should technical failures occur. We also cannot gurantee that all parts will be recorded. Therefore, it is NOT possible to register for recordings only. Students need to participate in all live lectures.



Course Goals

  1. To show how a close reading helps us discern how individual passages in the Torah have meaning within the book as a whole

  2. To show how a close reading of the Torah helps us make sense of the New Testament’s interpretation of the Torah, and more specifically, those passages in the New Testament that specifically address the believer’s relationship to the commandments of the Sinai Covenant

  3. To show how a close reading of the Torah helps us discover the Messianism of the Torah, and how its Messianism serves as the foundation for the eschatology of the Prophets, the Writings, and the New Testament



Learning Outcome:

  1. Students will be better equipped for interpreting individual passages of Scripture in the context of whole books

  2. Students will be more informed and better able to defend the New Testament’s interpretation of the Torah

  3. Students will be better equipped to share their faith about Jesus from the Book of Moses
