Registered for the First Course

TH500A
Introduction to Biblical Studies: Literature and History of the Old Testament-Foundations
0.5 Credit

A study of Israel’s early times and writings. Special attention will be given to the Pentateuch, Joshua, Judges, Creation, Flood, Patriarchs, Exodus, Sinai, and settlement in Canaan. Comparisons with neighbouring cultures will be made where pertinent. Application of these materials to modern life will be made where it is appropriate. Attention will be given to the various methods of interpreting texts (hermeneutics).

Doesn’t that sound exciting!!!

I registered for this course on Monday.  It was a relatively easy online process once I got to the right place.  The class is a Monday evening course starting on the 14th of September.  My other choice was a Tuesday evening church history class that would have conflicted with youth group meetings and would be more likely to conflict with work related commitments.  Monday evenings will mean that church council meetings will need to shift if I am going to be there.

So, now I need to figure out how to pay my fees, get books, and decide whether or not I need to go to the orientation the week before classes start.  What do you think?

  1. Hmm…I’m not sure if you’ll find the orientation useful or not.

    Is there a schedule of expected orientation events so that you can decide if any of them look useful?

  2. “Attention will be given to the various methods of interpreting texts.”

    I want to borrow your notes. Maybe I’ll sneak into one of your classes if your prof will let me.

    Also, why did you have to remind me about tuition fees?

  3. Skip the orientation, but be sure to get your student ID stuff/university email address etc at some point (that will mean a daytime visit); the prof will probably post stuff on-line that you’ll need for the course. Pay attention to dates/deadlines and know where your class meets.
