Fall- BIOT 1433 - OLD TESTAMENT INTERPRETATION: The course serves as an introduction to Old Testament interpretation. It provides an elemental framework for interpreting the Old Testament by exploring its ancient Near Eastern contexts; discussing literary, thematic, and theological constructs; and demonstrating how it informs Christian thought and practice.

​Course Description: 

Mr. Barber’s popular Old Testament Experience class has been expanded to add the New Testament. For many Christians, the Old Testament seems like a somewhat random compilation of history, poems, prophecies and strange stories of miraculous events. But how does it all fit together, and particularly how does it relate to the New Testament? In Luke 24:27, Jesus answered this question. He said the entire Old Testament Scripture speaks of Him. In the fall semester, Old Testament portion of this class, we will begin to learn what Jesus meant when he made this remarkable statement. The fall semester combines a traditional survey of the Old Testament books with an in-depth look at the beauty and majesty of the Scripture. Students will learn that the handiwork of God is even reflected in the literary structure and language of these books. The Old Testament speaks of Jesus our Redeemer in incredible ways most of us have never seen. As we uncover these great truths, one thing is certain: the student will never look at the Old Testament in the same way as the story of our Savior unfolds in these ancient pages.

In the New Testament section (spring semester), students will become familiar with these 27 books, their main themes and authors. More importantly, the class will focus on what it means to be a Christian and providing students with a framework to defend the truth of Scripture and their faith in the world that awaits them. Emphasis will be placed on the “big picture” of God’s Word so that students understand the heart of God for his people, as displayed from Genesis through Revelation.

Holy Bible (preferred translations: ESV, NKJV, NAS, NIV). The Story of Joseph and Judah by Warren A. Gage and Christopher Barber, which Mr. Barber will provide to the students (the cost is included in the materials fee).​ Unbreakable, by Andrew Wilson
