Department of Old Testament Studies

The academic study of the Old Testament – the Hebrew Bible – examines the world and environment which surrounds it, and contributes to the foundational research of theology. The history of Israel in the one thousand years prior to Christ, as well as the religious and theological history of ancient Israel and Judah during this time are found within this field of research.
