Why did Moses choose to tell the story of Abraham the way he did? What does it mean for us today? This course provides an analysis of Genesis 11:10-25:18, the life of Abraham, from a Christian perspective. It analyzes the literary structure, the meaning for the original audience, and modern application for us today. The course is based on the Third Millennium DVD series by Dr. Richard L. Pratt, Jr.


A great deal of learning about studying these Old Testament passages and a great benefit of having this information as a starting point of deeper learning.

This is an outstanding course. I highly recommend it. The instructor was great! He was thorough and I loved his use of repetition. I will go back over this course so it is “glued” in my brain. This was more than I expected. Thank you so much for offering this course. Hope this instructor teaches more classes. He is not monotone.
