David_Spotts_600x800All MAR and MAT students must take and pass The Bible in Context.
The Bible in Context course introduces the student who does not have an extensive background in biblical languages to the linguistic and interpretive tools which will prove most useful in the discipline of biblical interpretation. It is not a course in hermeneutics but provides or reinforces the background information necessary to move into such a study. The Bible in Context is required for E102 Hermeneutics. The Bible in Context and Hermeneutics are foundational for EO105 Pentateuch, EO107 Prophets: Isaiah, EN105 Synoptic Gospel: Matthew, and EN107 Pauline Letter: Ephesians courses.

Prerequisite: Required (MAR & MAT) Credit Hours: 3
