In class we will be discussing selected Biblical Texts. For each class session you should come prepared to discuss the passage having made your own observations. Prepare an interpretive paper in which you identify significant interpretive issues in the texts (drawing from observations about the text, co-text, historical-social context, intertexts, and your own context). you will prepare a paper, written in paragraphs and complete sentences, single-spaced, 800-1000 words.
