(    ) Historical Study:

America's Providential History (12 weeks)

Begins September 5-November 14 Cost is $200 includes textbook and handouts

We will examine the history of America from a Christian perspective.  Since God is the author of History

and He is carrying out His plan in the earth, through history any view of the history of America, or any country

that ignores God is not true history.  Most Americans today, including most Christians, have a

humanistic, man-centered worldview.  To see Godly change in America we must RENEW our MINDS

to view the world from God's perspective as revealed in the Bible--we must infuse the Faith of our Forefathers into 

the life of our country.  As Benjamin Franklin, one of our founders said, "He who shall 

introduce into public affairs the principles of primitive Christianity shall change the face of the world"

Join us in an EXCITING STUDY which will include reading, dvd video lesson, along with class discussion.

Those who have taken this class give it A+ Rating!

OT 102 Lecture Notes

(2) As a section: To view how the various sections of the Old Testament relate to and compliment each other clarifying God’s message.

(4) Geographically: to unfold the actions of God at work in the world in the proper geographical setting. (5) Chronologically: to help the student understand the order of events in the Old Testament, (6) Theologically: to unfold God’s systematic preparation of the Jews and the world for the work of Christ, and (7) Personalities: to introduce the major persons in the Old Testament and their unique role in the political and spiritual history of the major persons in the Old Testament and their unique role in the political and spiritual history o the major persons in the Old Testament and their unique role in the political and spiritual history of Israel. 

Course Description: In this course, Early Israelite History (OT102) we will study the people, places and events involved in the initial establishment of the nation of Israel. This is the second course in the Old Testament Study Series, covering the books of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth.

We begin our study of the early stages of Israelite history with Joshua and the children of Israel as they are poised to finally enter and take possession of Canaan, the land that God promised their ancestors years before. The significance of the Israelites finally beginning the conquest of the Promised Land can best be understood by reviewing their history and the events that brought them to the Jordan River opposite Jericho. How did they get to this point? What were there expectations as they looked over the Jordan River into the Promised Land? The beginning of their story is contained in the Pentateuch (OT101.

The book of Joshua begins the second division of the Old Testament, the books of history. This book continues from where Deuteronomy leaves off—a continuation of the history of God’s chosen people. In its pages we discover the story of Joshua, a new leader of the children of Israel and their conquest of Canaan, the land God promised Abraham and his descendants in Genesis 12:1-3. God had given the Israelites the land, now they were to go and possess it.

The book of Judges covers the time in Israel-s history from the death of their leader, Joshua, until the ascension of King Saul. The book covers the settling of the Promised Land and the attempts of the Israelites to drive out or subdue the remaining idolatrous inhabitants. During this 350-year period there was NO KING and “every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” The people were ruled by a series of Judges whom God raised up in times of desperate need. 

The book of Judges covers the time in Israel-s history from the death of their leader, Joshua, until the ascension of King Saul. The book covers the settling of the Promised Land and the attempts of the Israelites to drive out or subdue the remaining idolatrous inhabitants. During this 350-year period there was NO KING and “every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” The people were ruled by a series of Judges whom God raised up in times of desperate need. The pages of the book of Judges reveal the downward spiral of the nation of Israel through repeating cycles of sin, captivity and deliverance. In each successive stage of sin and deliverance we see great exploits performed by remarkably different people and methods of deliverance. For us, the story of each judge brings new understanding of God’s character and love for His people, and new insights for our own personal spiritual growth.

The book of Ruth provides another view of life in Israel during the time of the Judges. This short book is a beautiful love story between Ruth, a Moabite widow, and Boaz, the son of Rahab the harlot of Jericho. Through its pages we learn much of God’s redemptive love for both the Israelites and the Gentiles who give their lives wholly into His hands. This is the story of the family from whom King David would come and who would be in the lineage of our Savior Jesus!
