Controversial texts in the Old Testament

This course examines controversial texts of the Hebrew Bible from the point of view of the contemporary Christian reader. The texts discussed often played - not only in the contemporary discourse, but throughout the history of the Old Testament hermeneutics - an important role in challenging the relevance and normativity of the Old Testament for modern theological thinking. The course reveals the history of the interpretation of these texts and seeks the hermeneutical key through which the texts can retain their legitimacy in the canon of the Christian church and beyond.
