Old Testament Narrative of Redemption

This course traces the story of God’s redeeming love that began in Eden and included the people of Israel as his light to the world.

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, learn the flow of Israel’s history, and see God’s plan to redeem the world through the promised Messiah.

Dates: September 12–November 14
Books: Living God’s Word (J. Scott Duvall and J. Daniel Hays) and The Essential Bible Companion (John H. Walton)
