First Year-Course A.-Biblical introduction. During the first
term this class studies Bible geography and topography; the best
available text books, maps, charts, and standard reference books are
used. The course is intended to make the Scripture narratives more
vivid and real; to show how geography affected the character, religion,
and history of Israel and what it can prove about the Bible.
The second term is devoted to the study of Biblical Antiquities;
the life, customs, laws, and institutions of the early inhabitants of
Bible Lands, especially those of the ancient Hebrews. The value of
this knowledge cannot be over-estimated since is throws light upon
obscure passages and helps in many ways in the correct interpretation
of the Bible..

and How We Got Our Bible. Three hours a week.
