OT715: Old Testament Narrative Art


Travis J. Bott, PhD

Course Description

All humans tell stories. Narrative is a fundamental way that we make sense of our world and our place within it. In Holy Scripture, God tells us the grand story of our salvation. That means that the New Testament is best understood as the conclusion of the long story that begins in Genesis 1. This course will explore the sophisticated literary art of Old Testament narratives. Topics of study will include narrative theory, the conventions of Hebrew narrative, characterization, setting, plot, and ways of ending stories. This course will train students to become more attentive and competent interpreters of narrative texts toward the end of preaching and teaching in the Christian Church.
