Many of us read the Bible a passage or verse at a time. In this course, Dr. Jeannine Brown shows the importance of understanding biblical books as a whole. With her clear and simple approach, Dr. Brown demonstrates three methods to help you grasp the specific messages intended by Old Testament and New Testament authors. Learn about the different literary genres in Scripture and see how authors used certain genres to communicate their message. Discover how to read a passage in its literary context, and understand the importance of the Bible’s historical setting.
Dr. Brown is passionate about helping people understand Scripture and provides the knowledge and practical tools to equip you in this task.
This course is available in the Mobile Ed: Studies in Biblical Interpretation Bundle, L (7 courses)
