The Bible as Story

Course number: DEBS1224 • Credit hours: 3 hrs


This entry-level course is designed to demonstrate the importance and relevance of the whole Bible for today. For many, it is a mystery how the Old Testament is related to the New Testament. Some think the former is a source of unrelated devotional stories, laws and prophecies. In truth, the two testaments are the complete story of God’s progressive plan for his people. There can be no real understanding of the New Testament without a clear view of the overall message of the Old Testament.
It is the purpose of this course to concisely trace the story of Scripture and to help students build a central foundation with which they can understand, interpret and apply God’s word to their lives today.
