Required for MDiv Program― 2.5 credits. Prerequisite: BK501― Old Testament Survey: Pentateuch.
Because our students tend to enter our programs with extensive Bible knowledge, we make it a point in our Biblical Knowledge courses to steer clear of busy work in favor of essentials and meaningful perspective. This course allows you to revisit the Historical Books from a Christ-centered perspective― Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 & 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther. This course is a combination of the associated textbook
and Ignite University and Seminary
materials. Though the lessons are concise, they are full of rich insights and thoughtful conclusions. You will enjoy revisiting noteworthy and interesting biblical passages, committing to memory foundational biblical content, and sharing your thoughts on the community forum. And because this is a survey course, you will enjoy numerous maps, outlines, and organizational charts while discovering new treasures within the Word.
The same textbook is used for all three Old Testament Survey Courses.
