OT 101-Old Testament Survey 1
Any higher Biblical education is not complete without an Old Testament Survey course. This survey course summarizes the overall contents of the first 17 books of the Old Testament (Genesis-Esther). Many Christians wrongly believe that the Old Testament contains nothing relevant for today. It is almost treated as a separate document that is ignored or treated as a dead history. In truth, the Old Testament points to Jesus Christ. Jesus Himself said that He came not to abolish the OT but to fulfill it. Bible students must know the OT to fully understand the New Testament.
OT 203-Book of Ruth
J.Vernon McGee leads this study on the Romance of Redemption. Is there any more memorable statement of faith than Ruth's "..thy people shall be my people, and thy God shall be my God."?

Redemption is only posssilbe through a Kinsman-Redeemer. The student will gain a fuller appreciation of our Redeemer - Jesus Christ.

PM 302 Mastering Pastoral Counseling
BL 121-Introduction to Greek Word Studies
Why study Greek? God, in His infinite wisdom, used Alexander the Great to bring the Greek language into popular use. God then used this language with its many nuances of meaning to record the New Testament. The purpose of this course is to show the riches of the Greek New Testament. Each chapter offers a short explanation of key Greek words heightening the meaning of the translated English word. This study will provide spiritual food and help to those who study the Bible. The student will discover richer meaning in Scripture from the Greek language. The course is not designed to teach the Greek language. (Please see our graduate course offerings for the study of Greek.)
