The Biblical Content: Chronological and Redemptive Story Focused
The Roots of Faith is a chronological Bible survey, from Genesis through Revelation, but it is much more than that. It traces the unfolding of God's progressive revelation of major theological concepts, especially those theological truths that are closely related to mankind's spiritual needs and God's plan of salvation.
"The Roots of Faith classes not only give you a good survey of the Old and New Testaments, they also help you build a biblical theology. They could more accurately be called Biblical Theology classes." - Dr. Gil Thomas
In The Roots of Faith courses you will learn…
- The key content of the Old and New Testaments—especially Bible truths that confront what we call “worldview noise" AND the Bible content that you (and others) need to clearly understand God's redemptive story.
- The chronology of 25 major Bible eras and 100 key Bible events—how the Bible progressively unfolds from Genesis through Revelation. And you will learn how to think your way through the Bible, using these eras and events as mental hooks.
- The geographic locations where major Bible events occurred.
