This course is a study of the first five books of the Old Testament - their historical context, literary structure, and theological messages. The motifs which run throughout Scripture originate here, including: God's character, creation, Messiah, holiness and sin, righteousness and judgment, and redemption. A deeper knowledge of the Pentateuch will yield deeper insights into the rest of Scripture.

This is the first of three courses in the Sacramental Theology Triad.
This course provides a biblical and exegetical framework for understanding the meaning of the Eucharist. Within Anglicanism, there are at least four streams of emphasis which arise from this biblical basis. Each stream will be examined, with the aim of raising the student's understanding of each of them, as well as helping the student to clarify his/her own theological emphasis within this Anglican landscape.
