Biblical Literature: The History of Grace
The objective of this class is to increase Bible literacy. We will focus on the historical literacy style and the message of the text. We will take a deeper look at a few Old Testament stories and how Jesus interprets the Old Testament law in Matthew 5-7 (Sermon on the Mount.) The message and impact of the gospel will be interwoven in these Old Testament and Sermon on the Mount stories.
Methods of study will be a workbook with daily assignments, looking up word definitions, cross referencing within the Bible, and reading the current portion we are studying for that quarter at least once a week.
