What we want to do here is develop a biblical theology of the Old Testament for the church plant. So our goal will be to move through it with the intention of your developing a foundation for reaching people, building the church, and developing new disciples by examining the stories and themes of the Old Testament within their historical and literary context. We will study the Old Testament “backwards” from the point of view of the New Testament.
We will start by laying some groundwork by answering foundational questions like:
How do you develop a biblical theology?
What are the genres of the Old Testament and what difference does that make for understanding the Bible?
How does the New Testament use the Old Testament?
