Historical Setting of the Old Testament

198A Historical Setting of the Old Testament

The Old Testament reveals God’s working in the Hebrew people, and how He used, among other things, the history, politics, and interaction with Israel’s Gentile neighbors to accomplish His plan.  This class will examine Biblical history and the backgrounds of those neighbors to better understand the sovereign will of God, Israel’s lack of faith and obedience, and God’s discipline and grace in response.
