Old Testament Studies Overview
Old Testament Studies will introduce the student to the great events and flow of history of Old Testament times. This course is a survey of the backgrounds and messages of Old Testament books. While the focus will be on many of the practical aspects of the Old Testament canon, additional discussion of ancient cultures, geography, and the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecies will be among the major areas of study throughout this course. Other topics will include:
- Background Nations
- Key People
- The Prophets
- Daniel and the Link to Revelation
- Worship Rituals
Join Dr. Gilbert Braithwaite and an extraordinary team of Bible professors (including the late Dr. Hoyle Bowman) as they outline this survey of the Old Testament and bring it into contemporary context and application. In Old Testament Studies, not only will students continue to develop a sound worldview based upon accurate Old Testament theology, but will also be able to utilize that information in preparation for understanding and teaching about the geography, culture, and history of Old Testament people and events. Students who take this course will be better equipped to communicate the Gospel more effectively across cultures as they make the Bible clear and meaningful to people today.
