Working knowledge of the Torah is essential for every serious student of the Scriptures. Presented by scholar Gary Schnittjer, this Torah Story course offers a student-friendly introduction to the redemptive narrative housed in the first five books of the Bible. Every unit introduces a section of Torah with attention to its basic structure and narrative dynamics and a look at how it connects to the rest of the Christian Bible.
A refreshingly new approach to the Torah—neither an introduction nor a commentary—the Torah Story course provides an apprenticeship on the Old Testament’s first five books. It also provides a model of how to read Scripture intertextually with an eye toward the New Testament. Students will be left with no doubt as to the overarching unity of the message and composition of the Pentateuch.
By completing this course, you’ll gain:
familiarity with the narratives and messages of each book in the Pentateuch
insight into how to read the first five books of the Old Testament intertextually
a broader grasp of how the Pentateuch contributes to the story of salvation
confidence in your growing knowledge through unit assessments and personalized review sessions that include award-winning memory building tools
