Apocalyptic Literature

Course number: BS4102     Credit hours: 3 hrs

In the first part of this course students will strengthen their skills in hermeneutics through understanding the Scriptures in the light of redemption. The course examines both historical and contemporary issues in hermeneutics. Particular focus will also be on cultural analysis and hermeneutics. In the second and more extensive part of the course, students will study the nature of apocalyptic literature from its roots in the prophetic writings, and will trace redemptive themes from non-apocalyptic writings into the apocalyptic genre, and ultimately to the book of Revelation. Students will also familiarize themselves with biblical, prophetic and apocalyptic themes from Daniel, Joel, and parts of Zechariah, Isaiah, and Ezekiel.
