BIB5521 Pentateuch

On-site Course Dates: 

Overview: The Pentateuch is a foundational part of Scripture that shapes the stage for the rest of the Bible. A good grasp of the themes in the Pentateuch is critical for understanding all that follows it. It is here that the various themes are introduced and begin their development. Special attention should be paid to:

  • The need and hope for a Messiah;
  • The Covenant promises to Noah, Abraham, and Israel, and the hope for a New Covenant;
  • The need for holiness, sacrifice, and the longing for God’s Presence;
  • The development of the missional people of God, who live with love for their neighbours;
  • Living as those made in the Image of God, as commissioned representatives in God’s world
