When Paul wrote Timothy that “all Scripture was inspired by God” (2 Timothy 3:16), he was referring to the Old Testament. The thirty-nine books of the Hebrew Scriptures are foundational to our understanding of God and his redemption through Jesus, and essential equipment to live effective, godly lives. Yet, for many, the Old Testament remains a closed, hard-to-understand book.
Alan Gilman’s Old Testament Survey course is designed to unlock the mysteries found in these ancient pages. By the end of the course, you will be able to read the thirty-nine books of the Old Testament for yourself like never before.
