1 I. COURSE DESCRIPTION Syllabus for BIB 332 Old Testament Historical Books 3.0 Credit Hours Spring 2016 A study of the two major histories in the Old Testament and of ancient Israel in its historical and cultural milieu. Concentrates on the period from the monarchy to the conquest of Palestine by the Romans. Gives attention to the religious institutions, worship, and formative theological ideas of Ancient Israel Prerequisites: BIB 222, BIB 306, and THE 217 II. COURSE GOALS The purpose of this course is to enable the student to do the following: A. Gain an integrated overview of Israelite history from its pre-history to the close of the Old Testament period. The major divisions of this history are outlined in the lecture schedule in this syllabus. B. Explore the two great historical works of the Old Testament--the prophetic history of Joshua through Second Kings, and the priestly history of First Chronicles through Nehemiah--as well as the books of Ruth and Esther. The content of these works will be integrated with the outline of history from goal A, and the theological focus of each will be highlighted and compared. C. Examine the salvation history of Israel so as to discover therein the picture of God that arises from the records of His mighty acts and to learn what it means to be His people from the accounts of the Israelites' interactions with their God. III. STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES FOR THIS COURSE To demonstrate successful completion of this course, the student will be able to do the following: A. Relate the history of Israel to the larger ancient Near Eastern context. B. Synthesize the particular facts in an overall perspective of "Holy History." C. Relate, in reasonable detail, the contents of the historical writings of the Old Testament. D. Outline the similarities and differences in perspectives, historically, literarily, and theologically, of these historical writings. E. Interpret the formative role of political, economic, cultural, and theological factors in Israel's development. F. Relate these historical insights to a contemporary understanding of God and man in redemptive history. Revised 10/2015 Page 1

2 The student's achievement of these objectives will be measured and evaluated by examinations, class assignments and participation, and a term paper. IV. TEXTBOOKS A.

Revised 10/2015 Page 2

3 B. Department Policies and Procedures Note: Attendance policy is enforced. Excessive absences will affect your grade. See syllabus attendance policy. 1. Completion of a Course a. Late work will not be accepted. Assignments are due on or before the deadline given. b. Under rare circumstances, exceptions may be made in consultation with the faculty member for the course. However, except in extreme emergencies, students must contact faculty members before the assigned due date and request an exception to the policy. 2. Incompletes a. An incomplete is given only after the student establishes with the instructor and the department chair by written petition that his or her work is incomplete for good cause (i.e., lengthy illness, death in the family). Incompletes are rarely granted. Only those absences that are incurred within the time period of the extenuating circumstances prompting an incomplete will be excused. The student is still accountable for any other absences and will be penalized for them according to the attendance policy. b. A Petition for Incomplete Grade with all supporting documentation must be submitted for approval at least one week prior to the end of normal classes. The submitting of a petition does not automatically ensure the granting of an incomplete. The petition must be approved by the appropriate academic committee of the Undergraduate Theology Department. 3. Examinations and Other Assignments a. Early examinations are not allowed. b. Late examinations are administered only when extenuating circumstances are present (such as a death in the family the week before exams, sudden and major illness the week of exams that is documented by a physician). In fairness to all students, some persons should not have more time to prepare for an examination than others. The granting of a late examination request is rare. c. A Petition for Late Examination without penalty must be signed by the professor and the chair. Proper documentation must accompany the petition and must be submitted to the Undergraduate Theology Department. The student must schedule the makeup exam with the professor of the course. The exam must be taken no later than five (5) calendar days after the approval of the petition. Grade penalties may be applied as indicated by the Academic Affairs Committee. d. All exams will be given as scheduled. It is the student's responsibility when purchasing airline tickets, for example, to take this schedule into consideration. Not being present for the final examination automatically results in failure of the course. e. These requirements apply to all quizzes, tests, and examinations administered by the Undergraduate Theology Department. 4. Attendance Policy a. The Official Attendance Policy for the Undergraduate Theology Department is as follows: Revised 10/2015 Page 3

4 (1.) If class meets three times a week, 3 unexcused absences will result in 1 grade letter reduction; 6 unexcused absences will automatically result in an F for the course. (2.) If class meets two times a week, 2 unexcused absences will result in 1 grade letter reduction; 4 unexcused absences will automatically result in an F for the course. (3.) If class meets one time a week, 1 unexcused absence will result in 1 grade letter reduction; 2 unexcused absences will automatically result in an F for the course. b. The absences allowed prior to grade reduction are designed to allow for emergencies and illnesses, only. (Faculty may require documentation.) Administrative excuses are granted only when a student is on official University business and has received approval in advance from the University administration. c. The penalty for tardies is at the discretion of the instructor. VI. C. Course Policies and Procedures Evaluation Procedures 1. Regular class attendance 2.

Based on the Historical Books, how is the God of Israel similar and different from other ANE deities? B. Compare and contrast the two portraits of David in the Prophetic and Priestly Histories. Why are there two such portraits? Discuss the importance of genre to the discussion. How does the doctrine of inspiration play into this discussion? Revised 10/2015 Page 4

5 C. Explain the major theories concerning the nature of the conquest. Was it a rapid military victory or a slow infiltration? Was it some other type of event? How does inspiration play into this discussion? D. Compare and contrast the significance and use of temples in Israel and in the broader ANE. Use specific examples from the Historical Books. E. Examine in detail the theme of covenant in the Historical Books. VII.
