Course Group: Pentateuch
The books of Moses — Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy — are the first five books in the Bible, and are commonly known as "The Pentateuch." These books explain God's covenant with his people, including his Law and its many blessings and curses. They form the foundation of the rest of the Old Testament, and of the New Testament as well.
But how are Christians to interpret and apply these books today? Were they intended to be relevant only to the ancient Israelites? Are they understandable only by modern Christians with the aid of science? Are they primarily historical curiosities, or are modern Christians bound by their requirements?
