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

    Covers Exodus chapters 25-40 & portions of Numbers, Deuteronomy & Joshua. 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  Nancy J. Collins

    Covers Genesis chapters 1-26. Genesis is the book of beginnings. It tells us about God’s creation of the heavens and the earth, and of all that is on the earth, including human beings—made in God’s image. Genesis relates the beginnings of sin and redemption, of society and civilization, and of marriage and family…

    It gives the life stories of Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, telling of both their faith and their failures, and seeing God’s hand on their lives. The book of Genesis is the foundation for understanding God’s plan for our lives today.

    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.

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

    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.
