Overview

Preaching the Psalms (CM328) teaches students how to interpret and preach psalms according to their structure and the larger context of the book of Psalms. The course begins by introducing the mechanics of Hebrew poetry, including parallelism and the use of imagery, and explains how they affect meaning. It considers the book of Psalms as a whole, surveys and illustrates the various categories of psalms, and identifies christological implications of the book. It concludes with a four-step methodology for preaching the psalms and demonstrates implementation of those steps through the study of Psa 29.
