How to Read Genesis to Deuteronomy


Have you had trouble reading through the beginning of the Old Testament and its seemingly endless rules and family history? Or have you been confused about its relevance to us today? This course helps break down those concepts into an easily understandable process as it walks you through the first five books of the Bible known as the Pentateuch. It delves into the complexities of the writing and how to see the story God is telling about himself and his people during this time of history. You will walk through the themes, literary devices, and over-arching narrative of these books and read through them as a way to gain a deeper understanding of God’s nature and his covenant with Israel and all his people.

We estimate that this will take you 7.5 hours to complete (but not all in one sitting!).
