Comprehensive study of the entire Old Testament. The events
will be considered in their chronological order and in connection
with secular history showing the gradual unfolding of God's
revelation with special emphasis upon His great redemptive
work. Schools of criticism will be discussed and questions as to
the origin and composition of the books will be touched on. From
the archeological and historical data we shall learn much of the
political, social, and religious environments. Synopsis of all the
books must be mastered. The various periods of Old Testament history
will be traced in order, and the prophecies preparing for
the Messiah and pointing to His coming will be especially pointed
out. The course closes with a study of post-exilic history and
