The Divinity syllabus covers three core areas. In the first, The Prophets of the Old Testament, learners gain an understanding of the way the prophets maintained the religious faith of Ancient Israel, while also studying a significant part of the Jewish and Christian Bibles. Learners consider pre-canonical prophets, pre-exilic prophets, and study and comment on specific passages. They also study The Four Gospels, in order to gain a scholarly understanding of the life and teaching of Jesus. Finally, in studying The Apostolic Age, learners develop an understanding of the history and development of the early Christian Church, as well as studying the authorship, composition and purpose of the Acts and Epistles detailed in the syllabus.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
We provide a wide range of support so that teachers can give their learners the best possible preparation for Cambridge programmes and qualifications. For teachers at registered Cambridge schools, support materials for specific syllabuses are available from the School Support Hub (username and password required).
