Designed as part of Greek Studies I, B Track.
Old Testament I & II: Two-part, full year course. The guiding text for this course is Fr. Laux’s Introduction to the Bible, a clear and approachable text that guides the student through the Old Testament and the Church’s role in interpreting Scripture. A primary focus of the course is development and memorization of simple summaries of the individual books as the student reads the Old Testament to put in place a framework for easy look-up of biblical passages and grasp of the grouping and historical settings of the books.  The second semester covers the prophets and wisdom books of the Old Testament.
