BIBL 520

The Book of Exodus

Course Description

Exodus is a key book for understanding biblical theology as well as Christian identity and vocation. Together we'll explore God's dramatic deliverance of Jacob's descendants from Egypt and the formation of a new nation at Sinai. We'll consider the historical, literary, and theological dimensions of this book, as well as the ways it continues to inspire and challenge the global church.

What I love about Regent is that it’s a place for people who have questions about their ordinary lives. Not just academic theological questions, but questions about what it means to live the good life or be faithful. Not just a space for heady conversations but a place to wrestle with faith and a place where they can belong.” — Vivian Lee (MATS student)
