The first five books of the Old Testament – Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus,
Numbers and Deuteronomy – are known to the Jewish people as Books of the Law.
These five books (“Pentateuch”) have been among the most authoritative and
influential religious writings in human history, and the foundation for many of
the beliefs of both Jews and Christians. Here we are first introduced to
the God of the entire universe, are told how that universe (and humanity) came
into existence, what is broken in the human condition, how the Hebrew people
were created and became God’s unique representatives on earth, and much
more. This course considers the history, structure, content and themes of
the Pentateuch in a more in-depth way than in Old Testament Survey (OT1).
Suggested prerequisite: OT1.
