The Old Testament is an amazing collection of books that serve as the foundation for the New Testament. They tell the story of Israel and Judah, and their engagement wtih God through thick and thin. The Old Testament retells Israel’s history, shares wisdom, and praises God through poetry, all while showing the best and worst of those who claim to worship this God called Yahweh.
This five week course is designed as a borad based introduction to the Old Testament. Key issues will include ancient Israel’s history, culture, and context, as well as an exploration of numerous key biblical books and texts.
Dr. Cory Peacock (New York University) is the Director of Operations for the Sonoran Theological Group. His PhD is in Hebrew Bible / Old Testament, focusing on the Hebrew language, the sociological contact of Israel with her neighbors, and the languages and literature of the ancient Near East. He has taught at the graduate and undergraduate levels for the last decade, and has served the church in a variety of capacities. His recent work looks at the necessity of humility in biblial studies and consequently a life of faith. Additional, he utilizes a theology of play both personally and professionally, creating community in its wake.
