CHAPTER TEN: HUMAN NATURE 1. Does the topic “human nature” (or Theological Anthropology) offer much promise as a Mitte (theological center) for doing OT Theology? Is it ‘textually derived?’ What specific foundational themes and issues can be seen to intersect with it? 2. The OT has a distinctive way of speaking about ‘human psychology’? Explain this situation and how it affects our approach to terms like “soul, spirit, flesh” and etc. in the OT. 3. Let us (briefly) review the key concepts of OT psychology so that we can reach some general conclusions about human nature – as described by the OT. a. Nephesh – “Needy Man” b. Ruah – “Humanity empowered by God” c. Basar – “Human infirmity” d. Leb – “Reasonable Humanity” e. Beten – “The inward parts” (guts, bowels) 4. What is the Theology of Humanity evidenced in the Creation narrative(s)? 5. What does the OT mean by the foundational assertion that ‘humans are created in the image of God’ (Gen. 1:26)?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
