THEO 361 - Pentateuch

The Pentateuch or Torah, the first five books of the Bible, is foundational to Jewish and Christian understandings of God's covenantal relationship with humans and creation. Informed by ancient and modern religious thought, students will engage with the stories and religious practices of the ancient Hebrews, investigate their connections to Ancient Near Eastern literary and material (archaeological) cultures, and consider the impact of the Pentateuch on the theology and practices of Judaism and Christianity, exploring theological themes of creation, sin, covenant, purity, liturgy, and community. Prerequisite: THEO 223, or consent of instructor.
