Kingdom, Covenants, and Canon of the Old Testament


Number of Lessons: 4Avg. Lesson Length: 87 MinutesTime Required: 12 Hours MinimumLevel: Advanced


This course gives a brief survey of the Old Testament, examining the themes of “Kingdom, Covenants and Canon.” It shows that the Old Testament is not a random amalgam of episodes, genealogies and prophetic tidbits. Instead, it is unified around the central theme of the kingdom of God, which was administered through covenants and applied to life through the Old Testament as a “canon” (guideline) for our lives. It is based on the Third Millennium DVD series by Dr. Richard L. Pratt, Jr.


Another very informative course , taught in my favored medium. Thank you once again.
