Interest Courses in Theology

Winter 2018 (January 8 - April 20, 2018)

 

"In the Beginning": Gen 1-11 (DTHY 4120)

Evening Course

For centuries, the first chapters of the book of Genesis have been misunderstood because they were read as historical accounts. When science grew stronger in the 19th century and archeological discoveries “seemed” to contradict the Bible, the famous conflict began. This course will first propose an exegetical approach for a more accurate reading of Gen 1–11. Then it will study more in details the main texts: the two so-called Creation Narratives (Gen 1–2); the so-called Original Sin (Gen 3); the Cain and Abel narrative (Gen 4); the Great Flood (Gen 6–9); the Tower of Babel (Gen 11) and the Genealogies (Gen 5; 10).

Baptism and its Confirmation (DTHY 3461)
