The Hebrew Scriptures: The Bible of Jesus

This course analyzes the Bible, presenting the Jewish understanding of the order and canonicity of the Hebrew Scriptures. It equips the student with a comprehensive knowledge of the TaNaKh, categorizing the Hebrew Scriptures under Torah, Nevi’im, and Ketuvim, and an understanding that the Apostolic Scriptures are a continuation of the Hebrew Scriptures. It evaluates the distinction between written and oral tradition. It also discusses issues of canonicity and historical preservation of Sacred Scripture. It emphasizes the inspiration and revelation of Scripture, but it also examines the Bible as a work of art with its various literary genres.
