Biblical Texts and Traditions

Unit code: BS9004L


In this unit students will consider how the Scriptures of Old and New Testaments represent living traditions rather than mere inert texts, including:

  • how the formation of the biblical canon reflects the living nature of the texts within the Jewish people and the Christian community
  • how the tradition lives on in the ways Christian communities, including Lutheran, have understood and used the Scriptures
  • how the biblical meta-narrative with Christ at its centre forms the heart of the tradition.
