What is the message of the OT and the story of Israel? This course provides the answer by tracing the epic history of God’s activity with humanity through the OT people of God, Israel. Dr. Mark Futato takes students through the major themes of the OT books that narrate Israel’s history from the call of the patriarch Abraham through the return from exile, showing how each book contributes to the OT’s presentation of God’s goal of establishing a people and kingdom on earth.
