Overview

Learn what the first book of the Bible says in its own words and original context, and discover how it shapes discipleship today. This two-course bundle will not only enrich your understanding of Genesis’ theology, it will also improve your exegetical skills. Those looking for a deeper textual and theological knowledge of Genesis will welcome this bundle.

In OT302 Book Study: Genesis, Dr. John Walton shows how Genesis came to be; how this biblical text can speak to crucial contemporary questions about gender, science, and more; and how teachers and pastors can exegete important Genesis passages. Anyone responsible for speaking or teaching on the Old Testament won’t want to miss Dr. Walton’s exposition of the entire book of Genesis.

In OT303 Theology of Genesis, Dr. David Baker explains the unique value of biblical theology and discusses how an understanding of the key theological themes of Genesis can and should direct discipleship in our own time. This insightful look at what Genesis teaches about humanity’s relationship with God has deep value for those dealing with questions of relationships, sexuality, and what it means to be created in God’s image.

Both of these courses are fully integrated into your existing Logos Bible Software, taking your studies and learning experience to new levels.

OT302 Book Study: Genesis

With a passion for getting people excited about the Old Testament, Dr. John Walton provides an in-depth study of the first book of the Bible. OT302 begins with an introduction to the composition of Genesis, oral and literary traditions in the ancient world, and how this text reached its canonical form.

Dr. Walton provides an overarching study of the entire book of Genesis, taking time for an introduction to biblical studies methods; an analysis of Genesis’ theological themes; examples of how to exegete important passages; and a discussion of several key themes and personalities: Sabbath, gender, and Satan. This course concludes by showing how Genesis introduces the long story of God’s redemptive work for humanity, which culminates in the Christ event of the New Testament.

Dr. John Walton, professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College, spent 20 years teaching at Moody Bible Institute.

In his college years, he developed a passion for archaeology and Bible history. Instead of training to be an archaeologist, though, he focused his attention on studies comparing the culture and literature of the Bible and the ancient Near East. He has never lost his fascination with this subject, but comparative studies only provide one of the means by which he tries to get people excited about the Old Testament. He’s saddened by how little exposure to and understanding of the Old Testament many Christians have, but he’s passionate in doing whatever he can to remedy this spiritual and theological loss.

David W. Baker brings his interest in pedagogy and the Pentateuch to this Mobile Ed course on the theology of Genesis. In OT303 you will be introduced to the meaning and work of biblical theology, how it differs from systematic theology, and how to approach Scripture in a way that affects the reader for God’s glory. In addition, you will participate in a broad study on key theological themes found in the first book of the Bible, including an in-depth look at the picture Genesis paints of God; what it means for humanity to be created in God’s image; the impact of the fall and sin on both humanity and the rest of creation; and God’s plan of restoration and redemption—all informed directly by Scripture. This practical approach to biblical theology will show you how the book of Genesis shapes discipleship today.
