Wisdom Literature

Course number: BT303     Credit hours: 3 hrs

This course will examine all of the Wisdom Literature in the Old Testament, Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon. Their collective purpose in the canon of Scripture will be explored, as will their individual perspective and contribution. While all of them affirm the centrality of the fear of the Lord, they focus on different questions and address unique problems that arise as one seeks to live within God’s story. Together and individually, they are indispensable for God’s people in learning to live righteously and pleasing to God in every sphere of life.
