The Old Testament Historical Books (Joshua-Esther)-Journey through the Bible-DVD Certificate Track
- Reviews (0)
The Old Testament Historical Books (Joshua-Esther): The Journey through the Bible series is a Genesis through Revelation study of the Word of God. The series is designed to present a sweep of the Bible–it’s highlights and principles. This course on The Old Testament Historical Books is the second course in the series. With the conclusion of the book of Deuteronomy, a new era began under young Joshua, Moses’ successor, who led the people of Israel across the Jordan into the land of Canaan to possess the land and divide the 12 tribes into their places as prophesied by Jacob in Genesis 49. After Joshua, there were anointed leaders known as Judges who arose to serve both as military and spiritual leaders for the people. The story of Ruth includes a focus on her faith that preserved the righteous bloodline through the centuries to Jesus Himself. In the two books of Samuel we first see that under God the prophet ranks above the king, for it is he who is inspired to choose, anoint, and crown Saul and David as the first two kings of Israel—and also to guide them with both approval, when they were right, and reproof (or judgment), when they were wrong. In the books of Kings and Chronicles, key highlights concerning the reigns of King David and Solomon are reviewed with a continued emphasis on the ministry of the prophets of God, who retained continuous contact with God and therefore remained more powerful in their message which guides mankind in obedience to God. Lastly, in the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther there is restoration for the people of God both spiritually and physically through these godly leaders. Throughout these books of the Bible, Richard and Lindsay’s video sessions and Bible commentary reading material point out again the thread of the “seed of the woman,” who comes forth as the Redeemer, Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
Courses for the Journey through the Bible DVD Certificate Track include class sessions on DVD and a workbook. A Certificate of Completion will be issued when the videos and workbook are completed and assignments mailed to the Oral Roberts Ministries for evaluation and recording. A Certificate of Completion is not awarded without the completion of the workbook assignments.
It is recommended that students use their personal copy of The Holy Bible when watching class sessions as Richard and Lindsay often refer to scripture as a part of the lessons.
Class sessions are mailed to students on DVD along with a printed workbook. Students are required to watch the class sessions, complete all workbook assignments, and mail a self-assessment questionnaire (class session quizzes) to the Oral Roberts Ministries for evaluation and recording. Students who watch all required class sessions and satisfactorily complete and submit the self-assessment questionnaire will be mailed a Certificate of Completion at the conclusion of each course in the series. Students who complete certificate requirements for all Journey through the Bible series courses (Genesis through Revelation) will be mailed an Advanced Journey through the Bible Certificate at the conclusion of the entire series.
