121A Old Testament Survey: Law

The key to understanding why God sent Jesus to be the Savior is found in the first five books of the Bible (Genesis through Deuteronomy).  Here lie the treasures lost by our culture which give value and significance to life.  Put on your sandals and get ready for a life-changing walk on the way to the Promised Land.

Required for the Preliminary Certificate.


121B Old Testament Survey: History

Dates and kings and maps and things are dry, dusty facts unless you are reliving the events of God’s chosen people.  No other nation has so miraculously experienced God’s hand in its history.  Triumph and tragedy are intersecting paths that direct Israel’s journey from the walls of Jericho (Joshua) to the courts of Persia (Esther).  Great blessings await God’s people today who learn these lessons from long ago!
