Course aim

To examine the First Testament and the Second Testament as literature and as sacred texts, while critically analysing methods of Scriptural interpretation and the Catholic educational implications of the Scripture studied.

Course content

Students will develop their knowledge and understanding of key literary genres, themes and structures of the First and Second Testaments. The Pentateuch’s central place in the Jewish and Christian Scriptures is explored (especially the Books of Genesis and Exodus), including the contrast between literalist and contextualist approaches to Scriptural interpretation and the role of the Historical-metaphorical approach. The study of the Second Testament includes a survey of First-Century CE Judaism and the Jewish context of Jesus, prior to analysis of the historical development of the Gospels. The close links between the First Testament and the Gospels are examined, especially through the study of Matthew’s Gospel. Matthew’s portrait of Jesus is analysed and compared with Mark’s portrait. The course also explores the relevance of these early Christian texts and communities for contemporary Catholic school settings including Religious Education programs.
