A 90-Minute Overview of the Old Testament
Want to know more about the Old Testament? Want to have a better understanding of the 'big picture', the main storyline and how it all fits together? If so, then this is the class for you. We will walk you through the Old Testament from the creation story in Genesis up to the time of Jesus. This will include the so called 'lost years' of the Bible, the period of time after the narrative comes to a close with Malachi when the stage is set for the birth of Jesus. This is the period in which the books of the Apocrypha were written. We will cover the main narrative, the major characters of the Old Testament, and how the books of the Old Testament fit into this story.
