Wrestling with Wrath and Violence in the Old Testament

May 16–May 20 8:30AM–11:30AM BIBL 535 1–2 Credits (1 Audit)

Many Christians struggle with the pervasive presence of wrath and violence in the Old Testament but don't know where to turn. With that in mind, this course explores key questions like, Why does God seem so angry in many Old Testament passages? Is Joshua genocidal? Can we pray the violent psalms? How do divine violence and wrath in the Old Testament relate to Jesus? Together we'll examine ancient and contemporary approaches to these challenging topics, while reflecting on ways that texts of violence and wrath might surprise us with good news.
