Talking Donkeys, Holy War, and Shellfish:

Grappling with Tough Old Testament Texts

Taught by Ellie Wiener

(MA candidate in OT and Biblical Languages at GCTS) 

 

Have you ever had trouble worshipping the God revealed in the Old Testament?

At first glance, some OT passages can seem mythical, violent, oppressive, 

or just bewilderingly irrelevant.

 

This six-week course aims to confront these gut reactions,

wrestle with our questions, and suggest ways forward in coming to love God more by reckoning with hard passages in the Scriptures he has given us.

 

Week 1—Introduction: Why & how we grapple with tough Old                                               Testament texts

Week 2—Miracles & historiography

Week 3—Divine judgment

Week 4—Holy war

Week 5—Women & patriarchy

Week 6—Law (especially when it seems bizarre & irrelevant!)
