This unit explores the book of Psalms within Israel’s historical, social and cultic environment and the broader Ancient Near East context. Students will study how the psalms provided the people of Israel with prayers, songs, and cries for God’s intervention, and the ways they have been woven into the fabric of Christian worship. They will explore the theological contribution of the Psalms and how they have informed and shaped the lives of people of faith across the centuries and continue to do so in our contemporary world, even beyond the bounds of the Church in popular culture.
