OT Readings

Instructor: Forrest Bivens

The OT Readings selected for this year’s Winterim (2015) course are messianic prophecies drawn from books that are not covered exegetically in our regular seminary curriculum – and not treated in the most recent Winterim courses. We will begin with a brief introduction to messianic prophecy in general – its definition, nature, types, and terminology used among Bible students. Then we will spend time studying selected messianic prophecies and their immediate contexts. (Reading the text aloud in class is not a part of this particular course.) The prophecies usually bring with them distinctive grammatical and linguistic challenges. Negative and mediating scholars, as you might expect, have contested many of these gracious promises. We will take note of key objections and seek to offer fitting responses based on our convictions. We will look at these issues as a part of our study.
