Genesis – Leviticus: God Builds a People for Himself tells the story of Israel’s roots. From the creation of all things to the creation of Israel as a nation at Sinai, this course studies God’s process of building a nation to represent Him on earth.

I have really enjoyed participating in this class… The part where we have to write our answers to the questions really challenged me to think about what I had read and learned and put my thoughts into words concerning it. I will remember specific things I learned, that I had read in scriptures before… but now has a better meaning and elements of it that will stick with me forever from the quizzes. Thank you so much, and I look forward to participating in your other courses. God Bless.

The course was very interesting. I have read the entire Bible at least three times and this goes into extra information that I did not get upon reading the other times, a different perspective. I do all of the reading and taking the other classes has helped me look for what I had not before.
