Explore the themes of salvation, law, and God’s presence in the book of Exodus with award-winning Old Testament scholar Dr. Tremper Longman. This course takes you step by step through Israel’s salvation from Egyptian bondage, their receiving of God’s law, and His command to build the tabernacle. Dr. Longman then connects these events to the New Testament. Learn how Jesus is the fulfillment of the exodus and how specific events mirror Jesus’ life and ministry.
Get answers to questions such as, who wrote the Torah? How do we read the law from a Christian perspective? Why is there so much violence in the Old Testament? You’ll learn why this ancient text is so important, and just how culturally relevant it is today.
