In the course of the seminar, the students will be exposed to the plurality of methods available today to help them to better understand the various aspects of a biblical text which often go beyond the range of one particular methodological perspective.
Upon completion of the seminar: - The students will be familiar with some basic assumptions of the exegetical methods. - They will be capable of developing an appropriate strategy for their own research which will be requested during the Seminar. - They will be able to discuss and defend the outcomes of their own research.
