This is a survey course of the Jewish Scriptures (Old Testament) and the Christian Scriptures (New Testament). The main focus of the study will be to acquaint the student with the different books of the Bible, their authors, communities, and principle theological issues. Emphasis will be placed on God’s Word, inspiration, covenant, and the role these play in the lives of the Israelite and Christian communities. We will see how the theology of the Jewish Scriptures is carried over into the Christian Scriptures in the person of Jesus Christ.
