    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course requires you to be teachable and willing to suppress your own opinion to learn another. You must be willing to study hard, have a heart to learn the Old Testament, and sit through some dry lectures. Overall the course helps to build a framework for the Biblical narrative as a whole.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write exegetical papers that seek to understand what the Bible teaches and not just what I think it should be saying. It helped to teach about the different styles of literature which help to understand each subject better. Lastly, the course helped to reveal in depth studies of Biblical characters as they really were, and with integrated archeological discoveries.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to be willing to ask for help on the exegeticals because he is looking for very specific things. He will grade harsh because he expects a lot out of you. Also, study at least a week before each exam (sometimes 2 weeks depending on how much time you need) and study with others.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Marty is a good teacher, but spends a lot of time on curriculum that, in his own words, "you don't need to know." He tests are intentionally deceiving.

    Course highlights:

    I loved getting to know the map and timeline of the Old Testament better! I understand it much better now when I hear reference to a story from the Old Testament, or in my own reading in the New Testament.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start your reading sooner rather than later!!!!
