Course Description: More than sixty percent of the Bible is contained in the Old Testament. Yet, the material seems so different from the life we live today that it can be difficult to see the merit of studying it. This course will bring these ancient texts to life by exploring each of the 39 Old Testament books in light of their historical context, circumstances surrounding the writing, author, date, and the primary messages within them. The truth is, without basic knowledge and understanding of the events, people, laws and religious practices in the Old Testament, it is impossible to fully understand and appreciate many of the concepts, principles and doctrines expressed in the New Testament. TO PREVIEW A LECTURE CLICK HERE Course Aims:  To place the books of the Old Testament into their historical settings To study the nature and purpose of each individual book To study the overall patterns of human behavior as well as God's dealings with mankind To make personal application of the lessons learned from these books Course Outline: Lectures 1-6: Pentateuch Lectures 7-14: History  Lectures 15-18: Poetry  Lectures 19-22: Major Prophets  Lectures 23-27: Minor Prophets Instructor: Lanny Hubbard Lanny was born and raised in the Portland area.
