The Pentateuch – launching God’s story.
This course surveys the Old Testament books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, considering their background and seeking to grasp their main contents. We will trace key themes that hold the Pentateuch together as a whole, and how these connect with the rest of the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Pentateuch sets the stage for God’s story in scripture, and launches that story. Our aim is to appreciate the crucial contribution of these books for the whole of scripture, and treasure their value for life and ministry today.
