Most Christians find themselves much more familiar with the New Testament than they are with the Old. After all, the New Testament talks about Jesus, surely the most important focal point of our faith! However, the Old Testament provides a rich background of the world’s history before Christ, painting a clear picture of the world that needed the Savior who would come.
This two-part course provides a framework for the incredible gems to be found in the big picture of the Old Testament, examining each book individually, emphasizing major themes, and pointing out relationships between the books. We will also study the nations that affected Israel, a biblical theology of the Old Testament, and the chronology of Israel’s history. Each book’s discussion includes an introduction that addresses its authorship, occasion, and unique characteristics, although it avoids most of the technical issues, such as textual criticism, dating, etc.
Through your study of this course, we pray that you will:
· Grasp the general content and a key word for each Old Testament book
· More fully understand how the books compare and contrast with one another
· Discuss how each book’s background helps you understand its message
· Apply the teachings of each book to your culture and world mission.
· Use biblical theology to understand each book in light of the kingdom theme of Scripture
· View how the time period relates to the message of each book
· Review the geography and peoples of the Old Testament world to help you appreciate cultural practices during those times
· Develop your ability to discuss the covenants God made with Israel and how they apply to both the Israelites and to us
Are you ready to begin the first segment of your study? Advanced Studies in the Old Testament 1 will guide you to the big-picture story we find in Genesis through Song of Solomon.
