Old Testament Literature

Rev Mervin Walton
Course Description: The emphasis in this course is not on historical facts but on pertinent truths. The Apostle Paul had this in mind when he wrote to the Corinthians concerning Old Testament history: Now all these things happened to them (the Israelites) as examples (types), and they were written for our admonition (instruction), upon whom the ends of the world (ages) are come.” (I Cor. 10:11) In this course, the Old Testament will be explored by studies on Old Testament chronological events and their significance.
Learning Goals & Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the student will:
1. Recall the books of the Old Testament and their classification in order.
