COS 221: Bible II From Exodus to Exile
Classes: Sept. 12, Oct. 10, Nov. 14
This course examines the life of the people of Israel from the time of the Exodus until the Exile. The focus is on the Biblical witness and how the people came to understand their history as divinely guided and what that meant for their relationship with God. While it is necessary to understand the historical development of the period, emphasis will be placed upon the Biblical texts that are representative of the life of the people and how those texts inform our lives of Christian faithfulness and our understanding of God.
