Introducing the Old Testament

Do you know the difference between the Exodus and the Exile, and which came first? If not, then this is the module for you.

It is our most popular module and is designed to ensure that you have a thorough grounding in the entire Old Testament. The emphasis is on ensuring that you have a secure appreciation of the content of the Old Testament.

It will also help you develop your ability to interpret and use the Old Testament. Is Solomon really a wise King, or should we read with a heavy dose of sarcasm and irony? What had the bigger impact on Old Testament thinking: the Exodus or the Exile? Do prophets foretell the future, and the Messiah, or were they doing Something different?

A solid grounding in the Old Testament has long been recognised as a secure starting point for theological study. This module gives the foundation on which so much else is built.
