Curriculum Vitae for Eric D Barreto


NT 0220 01BIBLICAL EXEGESIS FOR MINISTRY Summer Session 2014-2015

Drawing on and continuing the work of the core curriculum's language instruction, this course provides instruction and gives practice in biblical exegesis and theological interpretation in ministerial contexts. Each class will focus on a single book of the Bible or several related biblical texts and will require regular translation assignments from an ancient biblical language. Prerequisite: LG0220 Biblical Greek PRE-WORK BEGINS MAY 27, 2015. POST WORK ENDS JULY 10, 2015.

LG 0220 01NEW TESTAMENT GREEK Spring Semester 2014-2015

An introduction to Greek grammar and syntax. Reading and analysis of selected New Testament texts explores the nature of translation and its relationship to interpretation. In doing so, students come to see themselves as active participants in the work of interpreting New Testament texts. Help is given in effective use of digital and print resources such as grammars, lexicons, and concordances. Mastery of basic vocabulary is stressed.

SG 0702 50SCRIPTURE AND ITS WITNESSES - II Spring Semester 2014-2015

An inquiry into the Old and New Testaments as Christian scripture and the Bible's multiple ways of presenting the nature of God and God's commitments to the world and its peoples. Students develop a nuanced outlook of the Bible as a whole as they gain experience identifying how several theological ideas receive different expression in the scriptures at different times in the history of Israel and the church. Small discussion groups provide weekly opportunities to interpret several books from the Old and New Testaments in greater depth while attending to those books' connections to other parts of scripture. Students consider how they lead others in making sense of the Bible in light of their current realities and for the sake of exploring and articulating their Christian faith. The course brings students' cultural contexts into conversation with the Bible and emphasizes how understanding the Bible requires them to engage other biblical interpreters as essential conversation partners. Prerequisite: SG0701 Scripture and Its Witnesses I (or OT1110 or NT1210-NT1213)
