Dr. Futato begins this course by teaching the basic mechanics of Hebrew poetry, such as how imagery and parallelism work and how they help us interpret a Psalm. He shows you how to read Psalms both as a unified book and how to break it down into different categories—like hymn, lament, and thanksgiving—and he explains why both of these approaches are needed. He then draws from his own experience as a pastor to teach you how to prepare and shape a sermon on a Psalm using your interpretive research. In the last section Dr. Futato brings all the elements of the course together and walks you through how he would study a specific Psalm and craft a sermon, from start to finish.
