ABOUT THE CLASS:
The Importance of Genre

The Bible is not only a collection of books. It is a collection of literary styles: Law, History, Prophecy, Poetry, Gospels, Epistles, Wisdom and Apocalyptic texts. In order to practice good hermeneutics in interpreting biblical texts, the genre of the text must be taken into consideration. This class will discuss the importance of genre, the resources you will need, and an exegetical example of using genre in interpreting a biblical text.
