About this course

BBL217: Old Testament Historical Books is offered online by Rocky Mountain College. This course takes the student on a journey through the historical books of the Old Testament from Joshua - Esther. Throughout this course we observe the literary style used by the historians to weave the narrative of Israel's history. The form and context of these books are examined according to the Hebrew tradition to delineate the theological perspectives of each historian. This course also examines how each historian presents key figures such as prophets and kings differently, giving us insight into the original audience's perception of these important figures and how God's purposes were fulfilled throughout history. The purpose of this course is to gain an awareness of the deep theological questions asked throughout the history of Israel and draw in the rich theological themes of history into continuity with modern day living. History's lessons serve to give us courage in the present and hope in the future.
