• This course covers creation to the Promised Land through literary, historical, and theological analysis. Major themes are traced through redemptive history as each biblical book is examined. Important theological issues, such as creation, fall, covenant, and law, are examined in the context of the ANE and Israel’s own historical setting. Such analysis is foundational for understanding the rest of Scripture and for how this section of Scripture has meaning for God’s people today.
  • This course is an exposition of two major portions of the Old Testament: the Historical Books and the Wisdom Literature. As such, it will focus on the historical periods of Israel’s estatement in the land of Canaan, the United and Divided Monarchies, and the destruction and subsequent Exile of both Israel and Judah. In addition, it will consider the poetic writings of the Hebrews, much of which was penned during the historical periods just mentioned. Our approach will be both exegetical (historical-grammatical) and theological (the unfolding of redemptive history).
