Hebrew Scriptures – Theology and History (NAIITS)

Semester 2
Available Online

Through a consideration of the historical, sociological and theological context in which the Hebrew Scriptures came into existence, this unit will provide the student with an understanding of the major emphases of the texts. In addition, the student will be introduced to themes in the Hebrew Scriptures that find parallels in what has been coined by some as the “Old Testament of Native North America.” This will subsequently be applied to the context of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contexts of Australia.
