Sacred Scripture 101:
Introduction to the Old Testament
Class begins on Thursdays at 6 PM to 7:30 or 8:00.
4358 Smallhouse Rd, Bowling Green, KY 42104.
This is a two-semester course divided into “Sacred Scripture 101: Introduction to The Old Testament” and “Sacred Scripture 102: Introduction to The New Testament.” The first-semester course will be a survey of the historical, wisdom, and prophetical books of the Old Testament seen as a preparation for the New Testament era; includes the revelatory stages of salvation history, the importance of Biblical typology, and the function of fulfilled prophecy. It should provide students with the foundations needed to deepen their understanding of the New Testament.
Each class session has an assigned reading. The student is expected to read the Sacred Text carefully before or after each class.
Due to the introductory nature of the Course, it would be impossible to cover everything in such a short period of time. Therefore, it is recommended that students read the Sacred Text before class. This will give the students the opportunity to ask questions in case something in the assigned readings will not be covered in the class but requires clarification or explanation.
A Bible (any translation, I recommend the RSV, but any will work)
