Old Testament Poetry3.0 credit hours
 
As much as one third of the Old Testament, including Psalms, The Song, Lamentations, and many prophetic texts, is written in poetic form. In addition, poetry is often embedded in Old Testament prose. Understanding figurative language, imagery, and literary artistry will give students richer experiences when reading the Old Testament and in personal and corporate expressions of worship to God. Taught in workshop style, students in this course will actively engage with the powerful and beautiful poems of the Old Testament.
