Survey of the Old Testament Part 2, Genesis 24-? - 14 Week Study
January 10th - April 11th, 2018
The purpose of studying the Old Testament is to understand God and his redemptive work more fully. However, this goal is complicated by the fact that it was transmitted through a very different language and culture from our own.
A Survey of the Old Testament will provide us an with an indispensable guide for exploring the literary, historical, and theological issues behind the Old Testament and its various books.
For each Old Testament book, the Survey addresses background information, purpose, message, structure, and major themes. Chapters introducing each major section of the Old Testament are included, as are chapters dealing with issues of interpretation, geography, archaeology, history, formation of the Old Testament canon, and the Old Testament’s relationship to the New Testament.
This is a wonderful book for your library on biblical studies because it is enhanced throughout by maps, photos, timelines, and charts.
Although this is a college level course all are welcome and will do fine! Join us!
