Old Testament Theology forms the framework within which the Old Testament is interpreted and understood. In this unit, we will ask what Old Testament Theology is and how it is practiced. Students will be introduced to the major themes of the theology of the Old Testament. We will also look at the approaches of key scholars in the field and consider the relevance of their work for the modern-day church. Engaging with these topics and questions will not only put our understanding of God and the Old Testament under the spotlight but will also help us to re-evaluate our views. Hopefully, it will bring us to a better understanding of the Old Testament as well as the God of the Old Testament.
