Product Description

This study approaches the Hebrew Scriptures by inviting participants to hear the story of God and God's calling of the people of Israel through the many "voices" of the biblical text. Narrative, poetry, history and prophetic utterance all have their own distinctive characteristics and purposes, arising out of a particular historical, social, and cultural setting. To understand fully the story of God's covenantal relationship with Israel calls for listening to these various ways the story is told throughout the Old Testament. This is the participants guide.

Publisher's Description

Explore the Old Testament's story of God and God's calling of the people of Israel through the many "voices" of the biblical text. Hear the magnificence of a Creation hymn, discover the law and wisdom teachings, listen to the warning of the prophets and explore the poetry of the Song of Solomon.

In the two weekly video segments, first gain insight from biblical scholars and then take a visual tour of archaeological sites, ancient artifacts, and other physical remains, related to and illuminating scripture and events.

Ideal experience for adults who are interested in the practice of prayer and worship and would like to connect prayer practice with Scripture. The study is accessible for adults with little prior Bible experience.

Participants gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Old Testament as an integral part of the Christian Bible and a renewed discovery of our identity in God and God's vision for all things.

This eight-week study includes a participant book outlining daily reading assignments for group preparations, a leader guide suggesting discussion activities for use in the 60–90-minute weekly meeting, and a video component providing interpretation and context for the biblical texts.

Sessions:
  1. The Making of the Hebrew Bible
  2. The Creation Story of Israel
  3. Out of Bondage
  4. Promise and Problem in the Land
  5. Israel Has a King
  6. Division and the Rise of Prophecy
  7. Exile and Response
  8. Restoration and Renewal

    We are currently in the middle of this book, with an average of 10 people in the class. The study requires a real time commitment from participants to read the selected chapters in the Bible weekly. It has been an excellent course, and the DVD greatly enhances the discussion as well as the knowledge gained. We are very pleased.
