B111, The Historical Books of the Old Testament - sem 1
Teaches the student the vital facts of Israelís history from the days of Joshua (c. 1400 B.C.) to
the time of the Babylonian captivity (c. 600 B.C.). The instructor points out practical lessons
for todayís ministers as he successively spotlights the leading men who appear in the books
from Joshua to Esther. The ministries of Joshua, the thirteen judges, Samuel, Elijah, Elisha,
Ezra, and Nehemiah are analyzed; together with the careers of Saul, David, Solomon, and the
kings of both Judah and Israel. Although the class is historically based, a substantial portion of
the curriculum consists of identifying and explaining many of the typological pictures of
Christ, the church, and current religious trends contained in this colorful section of Scripture.
