How to Read the Bible is a course for those who want to move beyond simply devotional reading and begin to explore the depths and richness of Scripture. Dr. Peter Leithart begins with the premise that since God speaks (and writes through inspired authors), those who desire to know Him should learn the discipline of listening. He emphasizes what he calls “spiritual reading” and explains the importance of having mentors and models with Jesus Christ serving as the primary model. Dr. Leithart describes four dimensions of reading—literal, allegorical, moral, and eschatological—which have been in use since the Patristic period and shows how the first three chapters of Genesis provide a framework for nearly all the imagery and conflict through the Bible.

Upon successful completion you should be able to:
  • Discuss whether the Bible has limited authority
  • Explain in what way our actions are an interpretation of Scripture
  • Identify and discuss the three main themes of Scripture
  • Discuss the importance of Genesis 1–3 as an interpretive key to all of Scripture
  • Interpret the apocalyptic language of Matthew 24 and Revelation 13 according to the three-decker cosmos of Genesis 1–3
  • Understand how Adam and Eve serve as recurring types in the progressive unfolding of the story of Scripture
