This course investigates the narrative content of the first five books of the Old Testament known as the Pentateuch (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy). It provides an overview of the main critical approaches used to interpret these books, but the approach to the five books is both canonical and historical. Attention will be given to cultural backgrounds, critical problems, and literary genres as they aid interpretation of specific texts with special emphasis on how these texts illuminate the person and work of Christ.
