Surveying the Pentateuch is a part of the Learn the Word Bible Survey Series, which unites thirty-nine esteemed Bible teachers, to accomplish one lofty task: to provide a user-friendly, theologically conservative, and financially affordable resource within the grasp of every serious student of the Word. The contributors of this series are comprised of college and seminary professors, as well as veteran pastors. All of these contributors serve as resident or adjunct faculty of Word of Life Global Bible Institute. Each one is committed to the inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture. This volume provides a big picture overview of the Pentateuch, one chapter for each book. Each chapter begins with a concise introduction, followed by a carefully constructed outline and survey of each respective book. This survey highlights the most important concepts and explains the most difficult passages. One of the very unique and exciting aspects of this project is that each of these Bible expositors donated his time and expertise to the writing of this resource. This endeavor was a labor of love. One hundred percent of the net proceeds go to the Solid Foundation Scholarship Fund. This scholarship fund helps students attend a Word of Life Bible Institute. Our Bible Institutes will help these young people to establish a strong Biblical foundation upon which they can build a bright future for the glory of God!
“God elects Abram (later renamed Abraham) to form a nation through which the nations of the earth will be blessed” (Genesis)
“Instead, He forbade it in order to provide Adam with a choice: either love and obey God or turn away from Him. This was necessary if Adam was to possess a genuine free will.” (Genesis 2:8–17)
“God’s grace is abundant toward Abram in spite of his lapse of faith” (Genesis 12:10–20)
“The fundamental meaning of death is separation, not cessation. Jesus did not cease to exist when He died on the cross, but He was separated from the Father. The day Adam would eat of the forbidden tree, he would experience separation from God and his body would begin to decay to the point where his spirit would eventually be separated from it.” (Genesis 2:8–17)
“Wellenhausen and his followers adhered to, was the denial of the supernatural” (Genesis)
