This course introduces participants to the Wisdom Literature of the Old Testament within the context of a Catholic interpretation of the Sacred Scriptures as outlined in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. To this effect, students will learn the historical setting of the Wisdom Literature, the importance of literary genre, the messages relayed and the use of the “Four Senses”, all while reading in the light of the New Testament revelation of God in Jesus Christ and within the living Tradition of the whole Church. The course is strongly Biblical based, providing students the opportunity to read and study the Wisdom Literature with greater depth and also providing tools for any further Scripture study and for prayer.
