Curriculum Overview

First Course: "Narrative of Redemption"

This course traces the drama that began in Eden adn winds through Israel's history to its fulfillment in Jesus Christ. 

Beginning in Genesis, we will examine the original world of Eden and God's intent for humanity and the tragic invasion of sin. Each step in God's program of restoration will be illumined as we move through the Old Testament and find fulfillment in Jesus Christ and his message in the New Testament letters. The course will connect the dots of the Old and New Testament books to reveal the big picture of salvation in Jesus Christ. We will learn the flow of Isreal's history and God's plan to redeem the world through the Messiah whose gospel continues to spread throughout the world.
