The Historical Books, St. Ann (Coppell) Tues. Sep. 22 & 29

Tuesday, September 22, 2015 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

The Historical Books (Course #602) These books describe God’s covenant relationship with his people from the historical period of their entry into the Promised Land to their destruction and exile from the Land of Canaan. They recount the history of a continuously unfaithful Chosen People towards an always just and merciful God, the rise of the monarchy, and the deportations and loss of the land due to their unbelief, unfaithfulness, disobedience, idolatry, and injustice. These historical books reveal that with God there is always hope and forgiveness.


At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the theological importance of the historical books
  • Describe Deuteronomistic Theology
  • Define the significance of “Miracle Warfare”
  • Describe the theological implications of the rising monarchy
  • Identify the Davidic monarchy and the Messianic promise
  • Describe the identity of the People of Israel
  • Describe the religious reforms of Kings Hezekiah and Josiah
  • Appreciate the religious message of these books as leading to the coming of the Messiah

This is an elective Scripture course.
