Course Description

BIB 200
Introduction to Biblical Exegesis and Research [Lecture] (1.0)

This hands-on course introduces students to the basic skills of biblical exegesis and research they will need to become responsible interpreters of Scripture. Through guided exercises, individual projects, and critical reflection on the interpretive process, students will be given the opportunity to gain a solid grounding in biblical interpretation. The course is meant to be taken alongside any 200-level BIB course in Old or New Testament and includes an introduction to library research for the purposes of writing an accomplished exegesis paper. If the student has already taken a 200-level BIB course, this course may be taken concurrently with a 300-level BIB course. Prerequisites: BIB 101 and 102; must be taken concurrently with a 200- or 300-level BIB course in either Old or New Testament.
