The first 39 books of the Holy Bible form the foundation for 3 world religions touching almost half of the world’s entire population. The Hebrew Bible, or First Testament, is foundational to the Christian faith. Our Bible could be likened to a two-story building where the second story provides the best view of God, Jesus, and the future. But without the first story, the Old Testament, there could never be a second story – it is foundational to all that we believe. This short course attempts to provide a quick overview of each book and also pause on some deeper insights from time to time. Together with bonus material, the student will be introduced into the wonderful world of the Old Testament.
