The first five books of the Old Testament are commonly called the Pentateuch. They tell the story of the nation of Israel from creation to preparation for the conquest of the Promised Land. But is the Pentateuch simply the historical account of God’s chosen people, or is it something more? This course explores the books of Genesis through Deuteronomy, examining why they were written, what they meant to their original audience, and how we should respond to them today. This course is based on the lecture series, The Pentateuch, produced by Third Millennium Ministries and hosted by Dr. Scott Redd with contributions from a variety of professors.
NOTE: This course includes lessons from the courses The Primeval Historyand Father Abraham, as well as new lessons on the Pentateuch. If you have already studied The Primeval History and/or Father Abraham, you may wish to study only the lessons that you have not completed. If so, you should ask for your grades from the other courses to be applied to this course. (See the Syllabus for further explanation.)
