Catholicism 101: Exodus and the Torah
During this eight week class we will study the Exodus and the Revelation of the Torah to Moses, which are the central salvific events in the Old Testament.
We will focus on the books of Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers in order to get a sense of ancient Israel’s understanding of God. We will pay particular attention to theological themes of providence, revelation, holiness, covenant and worship. We will also look at the laws in the Torah to investigate ancient Israel’s understanding of humanity’s relationship with God, human beings to each other, and humanity’s relationship to the rest of creation. We will seek to know these ancient texts better and discuss how they continue to illuminate our faith today.
