B809/B709 The Pentateuch in Practice

This hybrid course explores how the stories and themes of the Pentateuch can be taught in and through the various ministries of the church today. Special attention will be given to preaching passages included in the Revised Common Lectionary, using the Ten Commandments in Christian education, relating concepts such as the law and holiness to contemporary issues in the church, and reflecting on the role of the Exodus tradition in Christian theology. One of the main objectives of the course is for students to develop a set of teaching resources that are usable in their present ministry contexts.
