I teach Old Testament in two phases. Phase 1 is a "30,000 ft" survey of the whole Bible., where we utilize the Old Testament covenants to show the progressive growth of the kingdom of God. Then in Phase 2 we give a close up study of each section of the Hebrew Scriptures. The closeup will take students progressively through the Historical, LIterary, and theological studies of each section. This method helps students to see how the Old Testament can be applied in personal faith and practice.
My objective for all Old Testament students is that they read and understand the Old Testament story as OUR story which Christ and the church complete!
