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.

It is recommended that you take time to think through these issues in order to thoroughly grasp the significance and explore the application of the material you are learning. Click the Thumbnail to view the questions.
The following questions are for your thoughtful consideration and discussion:
- How do the crucifixion and resurrection fulfill major Old Testament themes? What does this reveal about God?
- What is "Crucifixion Theology" and how does it fulfill Deuteronomistic Theology?
- How does God reveal His Name in the New Testament? What difference does this make?
- Select one or more major OT themes and discuss how they are fulfilled in Jesus? How does this apply to modern Christians?
- How are the 5 epochs of OT history continued, completed and fulfilled in the New Testament? How does this impact the history which we are now living?
- How does Jesus fulfill both God's part and humanity's part of the Covenant?
- How is SCRuB fulfilled in the New Testament? How will it be fulfilled at the end of the age? What difference should this make to the way that we live?
Congratulations, you have reached the end of the Old Testament Survey course. I hope that you have found it rewarding and have noticed tremendous personal growth.
