The course consists of multimedia presentations packed with high quality photos, drawings, historic recreations, and video clips.
Bible Times and Ancient Kingdoms is a course on Bible geography, Bible culture, and Bible history and has a two-fold objective: to present apologetic evidence for the Bible and to give background material to help the student better understand the setting of Bible history.
We cover this fascinating history from Genesis to the New Testament, dealing with the Table of the Nations in Genesis 10, the Tower of Babel, Ur of the Chaldees, Egypt, Baal worship, the Philistines, the Canaanites, David and his palace, Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, Ahab and Jezebel, the fall of the northern kingdom of Israel, the Assyrian Empire, Hezekiah and his times, Nebuchadnezzar and his Babylon, the Medo-Persian Empire, Herod the Great and his temple, the Roman rule over Israel, the Roman destruction of Jerusalem, and the history of the Temple Mount.
The course begins with an overview of Israel’s geography and a timeline of Bible history to give the student a framework for better understanding the material. Each section includes maps to help the student place the events in their proper location.
The course also deals with Bible culture, such as weights and measures, plant and animal life, Caesar’s coin, the widow’s mite, ancient scrolls and seals, phylacteries, cosmetics, tombs, and the operation of ancient lamps, millstones, fishing, pottery wheels, and olive presses. We will demonstrate the use of many of these objects.
The course is packed with important but little-known facts that illuminate Bible history and culture.
The preparation for the course is extensive, the culmination of 40 years of Bible study, teaching, and research. In this context the author has built a large personal library and collected information from major archaeological museums and through onsite research in locations in North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, Turkey, Greece, and Israel.
We guarantee that the student will read the Bible with new eyes and fresh enthusiasm.
