Course Wrap-Up

We have learned to read texts critically by taking into account the author’s motivation, narrative gaps in the text, and different perspectives. Retellings of the story, whether ancient or modern, attempt to ask new questions about the text, which sometimes lead to exegetical encounters. We have learned that multiple authors have contributed to the biblical narratives, which draws awareness to the repetitive and somewhat contradictory facts that comprise a story. We also learned, through practice in group discussions, an ability to identify arguments and counter-arguments, and their effectiveness in communicating information.
