    Commentary by Nancy J. Collins. Study questions by Kathy Rowland.

    Following 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 Kings continues the history of Israel’s monarchy in light of God’s covenants. During the period of 1 Kings, the kingdom of Israel was divided between Israel in the north and Judah to the south. There were evil rulers such as Ahab and Jezebel…


    …and godly rulers such as Solomon and Jehoshaphat. Many prophets were sent by God to Israel during this period, notably Elijah. In spite of Judah’s failure to serve the Lord wholeheartedly, and of Israel’s kings to serve Him at all, we will see God continue to carry out His covenant plan for His people.

    Commentary by Nancy J. Collins, study questions by Kathy Rowland

    The book of 1 Samuel covers a period of about 115 years, and is a pivotal point in the history of Israel. The long period of the rule of the judges ended under the prophet Samuel, and royal history began with the anointing of Saul and later David.


    The history and lessons of this book are presented to us in the form of biography of Samuel’s, Saul’s and David’s early years. As with other books of the Bible, 1 Samuel records man’s failure and God’s faithfulness. Within its pages we see God’s long-suffering with those in rebellion against Him, and we see what God can do in and through those who are committed to serving Him.

    …and godly rulers such as Hezekiah and Josiah. During this period God sent many prophets to His people, notably Elisha and Isaiah. In spite of the downfall and captivity of all Israel by the end of 2 Kings, the future remained open for a new work of the Lord in faithfulness to His promise to the house of David.

    Commentary by Nancy J. Collins, study questions by Kathy Rowland

    Second Samuel continues the narrative begun in 1 Samuel, with David being acclaimed king in Israel. He makes Jerusalem his royal city and brings the Ark of the Lord there. We see the glory and success of David’s reign, as well as his weaknesses and failures.

    Within the pages of 2 Samuel God uncovers David’s humanity. You will discover that this “man after God’s own heart” (see Acts 13:22) was a sinful human, like us all, who had to depend on God’s mercy and faithfulness.

    Commentary by Bill Myers. Study questions by Nancy J. Collins

    Jesus Christ is eternal. He is present throughout the Old Testament, from Genesis through Malachi, just as certainly as He is present throughout the New Testament. Often, as people read through the Old Testament, they are not aware of the symbolism that points to…

    …Jesus Christ. Christ B.C. does not explore every pre-incarnate reference or allusion to Christ. Instead, each lesson takes a look at some aspect of Jesus Christ in the Old Testament, examines how it relates to Him in the New Testament, and explores how it applies to us today. It is an exploration that will make Him more personal in your day-to-day living, and lead you deeper into His great love for you.

    Daniel: Chapters 1-6 covers the personal history of the prophet Daniel. (The prophetic portions of the book of Daniel are covered in Prophecy in the Book of Daniel.) His story shows the sovereign God ruling over men and nations.


    Although Daniel began as a captive in Babylon, he held high positions under several kings of powerful empires. In spite of pressures to join the religion and immoral lifestyle of Babylon, Daniel lived a life devoted to the one true God.

    Commentary by Robert S. Ricker, study questions by Kathy Rowland

    The book of Ecclesiastes was written by the “Teacher,” whom many Bible scholars believe to be King Solomon. The Teacher takes stock of the world as he has experienced it, and discovers that human wisdom, even that of a godly person, has limits…


    …It cannot find out the larger purposes of God or the ultimate meaning of man’s existence. Although man is in mad pursuit of one thing and then another, these things all turn out to be meaningless. In contrast, a life centered on God takes on purpose and meaning. With God’s presence, all of life and God’s good gifts to us are to be gratefully received, used, and enjoyed to the full.

    Although God’s name is not mentioned in the book of Esther, every page is full of God, who hides Himself behind every word. The book of Esther tells the story of a Hebrew girl who was hidden away for God’s purpose and then, when the time was right,…

    …was brought to the front to work out His plan. God used Queen Esther—who was willing to risk her own life—to save His people Israel, so that they might bless the whole world through Jesus Christ.

    Commentary by Jean W. Randall, study questions by Kathy Rowland

    Covers Exodus chapters 1-24. Exodus, the second book of the Old Testament, continues the narrative begun in the book of Genesis.  We find God’s chosen people, Israel, living in Egypt. Although they originally came as honored guests because they were Joseph’s family,…


    …they have multiplied in number and been enslaved by the Egyptians. Exodus tells of God’s redemption of Israel from this bondage, and of His guidance of the people to the land of promise. God’s purpose in history is revealed through this account of redemption, covenant, and the building of the tabernacle, all of which picture God’s plan that would be fulfilled through Jesus Christ.  The final lessons  cover selected portions of Numbers, Deuteronomy and Joshua, showing how Israel finally settled in the land of promise under Joshua’s leadership.

    By Ruth M. Bathauer

    The study of Isaiah emphasizes the greatness of our God. Rather than a strictly verse-by-verse study, this course gives an overview of the main themes running throughout the book of Isaiah, focusing on personal application as well as historical events and prophecy.


    As we see how unchanging our God is in His holiness, justice, judgment and mercy, we are reminded of how unchanging people are in their hard-heartedness and rebellion against God. Although filled with judgments, the book of Isaiah continually brings to mind God’s grace. Truly, our God is an awesome God! With Him there is hope.

    Commentary by Ray C. Stedman, study questions by Nancy J. Collins

    Surrounded by the world’s widely accepted philosophies and ideas, what we often think to be reality and truth are but illusions, or delusions. The book of Job strips away those illusions, permitting us to see life as it really is,…


    … and corrects the false conclusions that our senses often bring to us. Job gives us a glimpse behind the scenes of this world, and helps us to understand the nature of human evil, the nature of faith, the nature of fallen man, the reasons for suffering and, most of all, the nature of our loving, compassionate God.

    The book of Jonah tells the story of an obstinate prophet who said “No” to God’s command to prophesy to Ninevah, and fled in the opposite direction. God pursued Jonah, bringing him to the realization that God’s way is best, that he could do nothing by himself…

    …The book of Jonah teaches us to obey God’s call at once, the first time, and then prepare to be amazed at what God can accomplish through us.

    The book of Judges covers the period in Israel’s history after the death of Joshua until the establishment of the monarchy under King Saul. At that time the people were ruled by judges whom God raised up to deliver His oppressed people—oppressions…


    …brought on by their own disobedience. In Judges we see a continuing cycle of God’s blessing, Israel’s rebellion, God’s disciplining, their repentance, and God’s deliverance and blessing again. In the stories of people such as Deborah, Gideon and Samson, we see God’s faithfulness, His patience and His grace.

    The book of Ruth is set during the time of the judges, and relates the story of a young woman of Moab who became the great-grandmother of David and an ancestress of Jesus. From Ruth we see that participation in God’s kingdom is not decided by blood, but by obedience that comes from faith. A beautiful story of love and grace, the story of Ruth reminds us that no matter how evil the time, God has His people; no matter how hopeless a situation may seem, God is greater. No matter what—God’s plan and purpose will be accomplished.

    Commentary by Ray C. Stedman, study questions by Nancy J. Collins

    Nehemiah takes place almost 100 years after many Jews had returned to Jerusalem from captivity in Babylon. They had restored the temple under the leadership of Ezra, but could not rebuild the rest of Jerusalem because their enemies made it impossible.


    Nehemiah held a high position in the king’s court in Persia, but he could not forget his people, Israel. With the king’s permission and authority, Nehemiah returned to Jerusalem to rebuild the city.

    At first glance Nehemiah seems to be merely the story of the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem, but a closer look reveals the story of God’s faithfulness to His people and His ability to restore not only a wall, but people to a place of blessing. The message of Nehemiah is one of hope and restoration.

    Commentary by Ray C. Stedman, study questions by Kathy Rowland

    This study focuses on the prophetic portions of the book of Daniel. (The personal experiences of Daniel are covered in Daniel: Chapters 1-6.) The book of Daniel, together with the book of Revelation, marvelously unfolds future events as God has ordained them…


    …in the program of history. Neither book has yet been completely fulfilled. These two books, one from the Old and one from the New Testament, complement each other in their symmetry and harmony. The book of Revelation explains the book of Daniel. The book of Daniel lays the basis for the book of Revelation.

    If you would like to know God’s program for the future, it is essential that you understand the book of Daniel. By and large, God does not unfold the future to us—certainly not in detail. But what He does show us in the prophetic Scriptures is the general trend of events and where it will all end. Anyone who investigates this area thoughtfully, carefully, and scripturally will discover that everything that is happening in our world today is working out God’s purposes on earth. These will all end exactly as God has foretold. We can begin to understand what is happening today if we know what His prophetic program is.
