I am sorry that I haven't been posting much recently. I have been quite busy recently with exams and work. I shall be posting something interesting soon. In this short blog I'll tell you how the exams have gone and what I am going onto do now in my studies.
I have had two exams, one on the 10th and the other on the 20th. The one on the 10th was from my 'Abraham to Exile' module and I answered questions on 'dating the Exodus', 'theories of concerning the Conquest of Canaan' and on 'Josiah's Reform'. This one went particularly well.
The second was okay, but not as good. It was on the history of Judaism after the fall of the Temple in AD 70. It isn't my personal area of interest so I found it more difficult. I answered questions on the 'development of the concept of a messiah' and on 'the problems raised by the emancipation and enlightenment of the Jews in 1789'. Fun stuff eh?
Next up, is my final semester of University life. After which I shall graduate with a Bachelor of Divinity (BD). The modules I am taking are Greek Text and God in Film. God in Film will involve watching films to see how the Divine is portrayed. Greek Texts will involve taking chunks of the Greek New Testament and Septuagint (Greek Old Testament) then translating them into English. Also, it will involve exegesis which is the interpreting the meaning of the passage. This will prove to be a very difficult module but I really love Greek.
