Pastor's biblical Studies

Survey of the Old Testament


Tuesdays, 6:00-8:30 p.m.

January 16 - March 3, 2018


Your own Bible (any English translation published since 1946, NOT a paraphrase);

The New Interpreter's Bible Old Testament Survey (Nashville: Abingdon Press, 2005)

Cost of the Old Testament Survey - $31.99 is the highest price I have seen; Amazon has lower cost offers.

It is your responsibility to purchase your own text(s) in sufficient time to read the first assignment, which will be available on December 24, 2017.

This is a survey course. We will not read the whole Old Testament, but rather representative books, and bring to these some scholarly treatises that will help us get deeper into the meaning and calling upon our lives that may arise from these studies.

Registration periods will start 60 days before course offerings, and registration deadlines will be one month before the course start to ensure that students may purchase their own textbook and read the first assignment before the first class.
