Purpose: To equip students with skills to apply the knowledge they gathered from Biblical Archaeology critically to popular literature, film and video productions, art works, stage performances, sermons, etc. based on biblical history and culture. The module further aims to sensitize students to become aware of how the modern media, film industry, journalists, artists, and clergy sometimes abuse and distort the history and cultural practices from the biblical period to serve their own agendas. Finally, the aim is to allow students to discover that knowledge gained from Biblical Archaeology is applicable and still valuable today.
