Prerequisite for Old Testament and
New Testament Survey Courses

Old Testament Survey 1 & 2
Section 1: Genesis through Song of Songs
Section 2: Psalms through Malachi
This course develops a better understanding of the Hebrew Scriptures by charting the trajectory of the Old Testament narrative, the history of God’s people, and the nature of God’s revelation of Himself from creation through the Prophets.
New Testament Survey 1 & 2
Section 1: The Gospels and Acts
Section 2: Romans through Revelation
This course focuses on gaining a better understanding of the Greek Scriptures by engaging relevant culture and history, understanding of biblical themes, and the nature of God’s people in Christ from the time of Jesus through His return.
Prerequisite for Church History and Theology Courses
This course teaches principles and practices of spiritual formation and intentional discipleship in both a one-on-one and small group context.

Section 2: The Reformation to present
This course helps to gain an understanding of the history of the Church from the advent of Jesus Christ through modern day.

Topics addressed will include: How Christianity differs from world religions, Faithfulness to Christ in a pluralistic society, How living for God is a witness to Him, The history of global missions and the call of God’s people.

MEETING REQUIREMENTS & FORMAT
Each monthly meeting will involve weekly preparation on the part of the student:
– Approx 2-3 hours listening to lecture recordings (via MP3)
– Approx 1-2 hours reviewing lecture outlines (via PDF) and taking notes
While a brief review of the month’s material will be conducted, each monthly meeting will assume the preparation of the students and will, therefore, focus more heavily on group discussion and application.
Schedule and courses subject to change.
