Subjects

New Testament Survey 1

This module will study the history, background, culture, people and personalities of the New Testament from the Gospels of Matthew through John, which will:

  • Enlighten the student on cultural and political settings of Jesus’ day.
  • Help the student to understand Jesus’ actions and sayings and His disciples better.
  • Provide the student with an overall working knowledge of the New Testament so that he/she can correctly interpret and apply New Testament passages.

Old Testament History 1

This course will study the history of the Old Testament from Creation to the birth of the nation of Israel and the Israelites’ conquest of the Promised Land, with special focus on the Table of Nations (how the different nations in the world began) in Genesis 10.  Students will learn that the Promised Land is central to the Table from the arrangement of Noah’s descendants and that God’s plan to bless the new nation of Israel through whom the Messiah will come involved the movement, displacement and conquest of the Canaanites (due to Noah’s curse in Genesis 9).  These will build strong Old Testament foundation that will enhance the student’s understanding of the New Testament.
