Old Testament Survey: Poetry

121C Old Testament Survey: Poetry

People are people.  No other section of Scripture illustrates this better than the wisdom literature of the Hebrews (Job through Song of Solomon).  With sublime artistry, Israel’s poets tell their stories of life and death, of love and hate, of hope and fear.  Our lives are found in their lives.  Their faith can become our faith.

NOTE:  The purpose of each Old Testament survey course is to give an overview of each book in each survey group.  Time does not permit a verse-by-verse study of each book.  The Bible Certificate program will give the student the opportunity to study a book in more detail.

Required for the Preliminary Certificate.
