The purpose of studying the Old Testament is to understand God and his redemptive work more fully. However, this goal is complicated by the fact that the Old Testament was written in a very different language and culture from our own. Andrew Hill and John Walton's A Survey of the Old Testament Video Lectures helps to bridge that divide and provides an indispensable guide to the literary, historical, and theological issues behind the Old Testament and its various books.
Lessons covering each Old Testament book are included, as are lessons on each major section of the Old Testament, issues of interpretation, geography, archaeology, history, formation of the Old Testament canon, and the Old Testament's relationship to the New Testament.
A companion to the widely used textbook, A Survey of the Old Testament Video Lectures is an indispensable resource for students and independent learners alike.
