At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

1 - to confront him/herself in a personal and critical way with the reflection developed during the lectures on the basis of biblical texts.
- to argue his/her position, showing that he/she is conscious of the complexity of the questions at stake, also when confronted with various philosophical and religious traditions
- to read a biblical text methodically, showing that he/she understands what is implied by such a process of reading and interpreting a text in the present context.

The contribution of this Teaching Unit to the development and command of the skills and learning outcomes of the programme(s) can be accessed at the end of this sheet, in the section entitled “Programmes/courses offering this Teaching Unit”.
As the title indicates, the primary focus of the course will be the Bible. The course will focus more precisely on the ongoing dialogue between the Bible and Law keeping in mind that the majority of the students come from the Law Department. Within the contemporary cultural context, such a point of entry into the Bible cannot be developed without at least a general introduction to the Bible itself, to Biblical Law, before touching on the main objective of the course, which is the reading of the Biblical texts themselves. It is therefore intended that the course will demonstrate the originality of Biblical Law, its coherence, its richness, and its relevance as a source of inspiration in today's world. It is also hoped that the course will help in fostering theological and anthropological reflections and eventually linking them with the other components of the programme.
