Why study the OT?

When studying scripture it is rightly said that context is king. Jesus did not come from heaven to earth in a mystical or mysterious vacuum; he had a family and that family had a history. To know the Old Testament is to know that history and the context of Jesus’ words and actions as well as the prophecies made about Him. To know the Old Testament is to know the purposes of God towards His creation, through His dealings with Israel, beginning with Adam and culminating in the redemption of His glorious Church. In this course your lecturers will be two experienced Old Testament researchers and scholars, Dr Daniel Simango, (Principal of the Bible Institute) and Dr Karl Peterson (former lecturer at the Bible Institute)
