OT 6000: Introduction to Old Testament Perspectives on Scripture

  • Instructor: D.A. Carson
  • Description: This course is not an introduction to what the OT contributes to Scripture, for that would require not only detailed study of the entire OT, but also careful examination of how the NT uses the OT, and much more. Rather, this is an introduction to what the OT contributes to the doctrine of Scripture, that is, what it contributes to how we ought to think about Scripture. Even with this limitation, the subject is huge, so the approach in this course is merely representative rather than a comprehensive survey. Nevertheless, by the end of this course the student should be able to articulate some of the ways in which the OT contributes to the doctrine of Scripture, and also explain in some detail several representative passages, all with the correlative aim of handling Scripture more faithfully.
