“What? Study the Old Testament? What for? That doesn’t apply to us. Christians are people of the New Testament.” Believe it or not, that’s what someone in the church said to me a long time ago. And since then, I have discovered many Christians, yes and even pastors, who feel the same way. They complain, “It has bizarre names.” “It’s filled with poetry that I can’t understand.” Or, “It’s just plain boring.” Are those sentiments yours, too? Or maybe you’ve just thought them? Well, the Old Testament is God’s Word, and we should never disregard or think it to be irrelevant. On the contrary, it’s extremely relevant. If you don’t know it well, you’ll not understand the New Testament well. God’s revelation is progressive, which means that the New Testament doesn’t replace the Old Testament but fulfills it. In this survey course, we dispel misunderstandings about the Old Testament and examine inspiration, canonicity, textual criticism, genres, books and themes, and an approach to studying this part of God’s Word more confidently and excitedly. Come hungry, leave full.
