Pentateuch (Old Testament)

Course number: DEBS2111 • Credit hours: 3 hrs


Distance Education Course: Examine the Pentateuch for authorship, purpose and unity with a focus on analysis of message and theme.

Course Description: This course will engage the student in a study and examination of the Pentateuch in light of questions relating to structure, documentary hypothesis and major themes. Some of the major themes such as Creation of the World, the Fall of Humanity into Sin, the Flood of the Earth and God’s Covenant with Humanity through Abraham will receive special attention as we attempt to trace the redemptive thread that is very much part of both the Old and New Testament story-line.
