Biblical Theology

Unit code: BS3020L

Description

This unit provides an introduction to the discipline of biblical theology, which integrates the contents and theological themes of the Old and New Testaments as the essential foundation for Christian faith, life, and ministry. It provides an opportunity for students to listen to the text in fresh ways—not just its harmonies, but also its creative dissonances. Students will be challenged and nurtured to think theologically and pastorally about these themes (and others), and to reflect critically on the claims of Christian faith regarding the contemporary world.  The unit proceeds by identifying and expounding three broad and interrelated themes: our relational God, theodicy, apocalyptic, ecology, and human sexuality.
