Discover the beauty of Old Testament poetry and prophecy from one of the world’s foremost Hebrew scholars—Dr. David W. Baker. In OT102, Dr. Baker describes the ancient literary techniques used in poetry and prophecy so you gain more appreciation for these often overlooked portions of the Old Testament. He distills the message, theme, and structure of each book in poetic and prophetic genres into concentrated video lecture segments. This is the ideal sequel to Dr. Mark Futato’s OT101 course. In OT232, Dr. Baker builds upon his survey course to cover four of the Old Testament Minor Prophets—the books of Amos, Obadiah, Joel, and Malachi—in even greater detail. He also provides insightful commentary about how the message of each book relates to contemporary issues.

These courses are the result of more than 30 years of work in Old Testament studies, and have been designed in collaboration with Dr. Baker to be especially helpful for those who desire more insight into Old Testament poetry and prophecy.
