Why study the Old Testament? Isn't the New Testament for believers? We believe what the Book says: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works" (2 Tim. 3:16-17). The Old Testament paints a grand picture of who God is and corrects humanity's perception of self. In two words, the Old Testament is about "promises made." We learn of our promise-making God and why we need His promises.

This course surveys Ecclesistes to Malachi looking at major ideas and themes of each book.

What does it mean to be a man? What does it mean to be a woman? Do men and women have different roles? Some might say those are the wrong questions, that we need a new flexibility when it comes to issues of gender and sexuality. Thankfully, the Bible speaks to these issues. We will turn to the Scriptures and see what God the creator of man and woman has to say.
