Exploring the Old Testament


Dr. Donna Petter

Associate Professor of Old Testament

Code Section Course Title Professor Site Date/Time
OT 500 JA Exploring the Old Testament D. Petter Online May 25 – August 17

Course Description

This course highlights the big picture of the Old Testament through the lens of relationship. Book by book it plots God’s relentless pursuit of a people (with whom he might relate), a place (for the relationship to unfold), and a presence (God’s presence that reveals his character). Through this tri-fold emphasis of a people, a place, and a presence (PPP) we will see how each book fits into the overarching story of the Old Testament and how the unfolding narrative points forward to the New Testament.
