Reading Scripture Interculturally

Semester 2

In this unit, students will explore the theory and practice of reading Christian Scriptures with people in different cultural contexts. Factors taken into account include the context, cultures, worldviews, heritages and traditions of the biblical authors, in dialogue with the context of contemporary readers. Students will explore common theological understandings of the work of the Holy Spirit in the inspiration of Christian Scripture, as well in the hermeneutic process, and will be introduced to frameworks and methodologies for reading of Scripture interculturally with others. Pathways for missional engagement, conversation and dialogue that result from reading Scriptures interculturally with others will be explored.
