This course gives a brief survey of the Old Testament, examining the themes of kingdom, covenants and canon. We will see that the Old Testament is not a random amalgam of episodes, genealogies and prophetic tidbits. Instead, it is unified around the central theme of the kingdom of God which was administered through covenants and applied to life through the Old Testament as a "canon," or guideline. This course is based on the lecture series, Kingdom, Covenant, & Canon of the Old Testament, produced by Third Millennium Ministries and presented by Dr. Richard L. Pratt, Jr.
Have you ever wondered why the New Testament gives so much attention to the kingdom of God or how this central theme relates to the new covenant in Christ? This course explores these two fundamental features of the New Testament by examining where they originated and what they mean for us today. This course is based on the lecture series, Kingdom & Covenant in the New Testament, produced by Third Millennium Ministries and hosted by Dr. Simon Vibert with contributions from a variety of professors.
Evangelical Christians affirm the Scriptures as God's inerrant word, but we still disagree sometimes over the meaning of particular verses or passages, and these differences can influence our Christian doctrine and practice. One reason for these disagreements is that there are many different approaches to interpreting the Bible. But how do we know which approach to interpretation is the most responsible? This course will help answer that question. It is based on the lecture series, He Gave Us Scripture: Foundations of Interpretation, produced by Third Millennium Ministries and hosted by Dr. Richard L. Pratt, Jr. with contributions from a variety of professors.
