BIB 112 – Intro. To Old Testament History Danett Bourgolly Major Events of Old Testament History Module 1 Page 2 Module 1 Introduction to the Study of the Old Testament “A history whose basis is divine intervention by providing truth, The Old Testament has been in existence for over 2000 years and brought about a radical change to history. In order for one to truly understand a book, the author has to have knowledge of or to what he or she is writing about and be able to relay that knowledge through his writing to his reader(s).” (Merrill, 2008) While the Jews and Protestants have always recognized the Old Testament as threefold and fivefold respectively, the Old Testament is the collection of sacred writings considered by the Jews to be scripture (Torah/Law, Nebi’im/Prophets and Kethubim/Writings) and by the First century Christian church as their source for doctrine and ethics (Pentateuch, History, Writings and the Major and Minor Prophets) and eventually when the New Testament was composed, both together were accepted as the written word of God (Bible, biblion /book).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
