Wisdom Books of the Old Testament

This online independent study course focuses on the Wisdom Literature of the Old Testament: Proverbs, Job, Qohelet, Sirach, and Wisdom of Solomon, with emphasis on the former three, which will be carefully read in their entirety. In addition to introducing each of these OT books, certain passages in each book will be closely examined, which will provide students with interpretive tools that will be of use in the prophetic aspect of their Christian ministry. Students who complete this course should be able to explain the Hebrew concept of Wisdom and how the wisdom books communicate inspired truth.
