The Old Testament is sometimes viewed as antiquated, mysterious, and even irrelevant. In this course, Waltke examines how Old Testament theology is pivotal to the universal goal of redemptive history: the rule of God and the establishment of God’s kingdom in all the earth. The course tracks salvation history as it appears in nearly every book of the Old Testament, and it shows the vital relationship of the Old Testament to the New Testament. Throughout the course, Waltke applies the doctrines of kingdom and salvation to the Christian life.
