Taylor Seminary is pleased to announce that another course will be offered in Grande Prairie: OT 417 Old Testament Introduction, which will feature Old Testament prof Dr. Jerry Shepherd. This modular course will be offered over three weekends in Winter 2013 for graduate credit through Taylor Seminary, or for undergraduate credit (as REL 102 Old Testament Literature) through Taylor College, transferrable to U of A, University of Calgary, Athabasca University, Kings University College, Concordia University College, Canadian University College, and University of Lethbridge.
OT 417 is a survey of the contents, message, form, and background of the Old Testament. Attention will be given to the major theological themes in this literature, considering such questions as:
- Is the creation account in Genesis historically and scientifically accurate?
- What does it mean that human beings are made in the image of God?
- How do we know which books really belong in the Old Testament?
- The Old Testament is law, and the New Testament is grace, right?
- Are Christians in any way still “under” Old Testament law?
- Is the angry, violent God of the Old Testament actually related to Jesus? Is he really the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ?
- What's important and relevant about the Old Testament anyway?
- When are all those great Old Testament prophecies (the coming war with Russia, the rebuilding of the temple, Daniel's last week) going to come true?
Come, and together we'll explore the answers to all these questions in this fully-accredited, three-credit course.
