Old Testament Survey - Module 7: Toward the New Testament

Hi everyone, and welcome to the seventh and final module for the Old Testament survey course. In this section, we'll lay the groundwork for connecting what we have learned in the Old Testament to the New Testament.

Upon successful completion of this module, the student will:

  • Summarize a review of the Old Testament history and teaching.
  • Demonstrate how the Old Testament prepares for the climactic revelation of Christ.
  • Describe how the various themes of the Old Testament find their fulfillment in Christ.
  • Explain how Jesus satisfies Deuteronomistic theology, fulfills both sides of the Covenant, and brings the consummation of SCRuB.

Below you will find links to all the study material for this module.
