BIB3033 Old Testament Historical Books (3 credits)

This interpretive survey covers the historical books of the
Old Testament—the books of Joshua through Esther. They
deal with the period of about 1,000 years from the entrance
of the nation of Israel into the Promised Land until its return
after the Exile. The course especially emphasizes Israel’s
messianic mission first described in God’s covenant with
Abraham, father of the Hebrew nation. It examines the
background, structure, and content of each book to provide
an understanding of the times and their relationship to God’s
purpose in redeeming the world through Jesus Christ.
