A survey of the Old Testament that will trace its significant teachings with respect to their historical and cultural backgrounds. It will provide a historical perspective of the people of God in the OT. The formation of its canon and proofs of its historical integrity will be discussed in order to establish its authority as the Word of God. The main focus will be on the purpose of God for creating humanity, the event of the fall of Adam that resulted to sin and suffering, and the plan of salvation the LORD promised and accomplished in the history of Israel. The fulfillment of the promise in the New Testament will be introduced briefly in this study.
A study of the New Testament, tracing its teachings with respect to the historical and cultural backgrounds and literary genre. It will cover topics such as the reliability of NT documents, why there are four gospels, the different but not contradictory portraits of Jesus and his ministry culminating on the cross, the origin of the church and the theological and ethical issues it faced as presented in the book of Acts and the epistles. Implications of all these topics will be drawn for spiritual and professional life.
