Welcome to "Theo-201: Old Testament" with Chad Bird

Reading Time: 1 min

Starting March 7th, 1517 Academy is partnering with Grand View University to offer the first course of its kind: A college-level course for those ready to dig deeper and earn real college credit.

This course is intended to survey the literature of the Old Testament to discern prophecies, patterns, and foreshadowings of the Messiah. Students are introduced to interpretive methods of biblical study, the ritual system and sanctuary symbolism of Israel, and historical understandings of the Messiah in the Old Testament, while exploring the ramifications this entails for teaching and preaching on the Old Testament in the church today.

Those familiar with Chad's first academy course, "Christ in the Old Testament," will recognize this as opportunity to dig even further into the many connections between Christ and The Old Testament.
