The Old Testament as Literature
Lecture no. 1 from the course: Understanding the Old Testament
Taught by Professor Robert D. Miller II | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Consider the historical and literary contexts of the Old Testament, and take an overview of this course. Then, study the events contained within the first six days of creation. For each day, note what was created, how God evaluated it, and how the events of the days are interconnected. Also, observe how the events establish an elaborate pattern and what that pattern meant to ancient Israelites.
