About the Course

This course studies the interpretation and use of the Bible against the background of hermeneutical theory and theological reflection. It looks at the various contexts in which biblical interpretation takes place and their specific conditions and possibilities. Particular focus is given to the relation between exegetical methods, historical interpretations, and contemporary applications, as well as to the contested role of the Bible in Systematic Theology. Through a combination of theoretical models and practical work in biblical interpretation, the course prepares students to handle biblical texts with greater sophistication in their own independent research and reflection, and from the perspective of various interpretive communities.
