Salvation History

Salvation History

Aim of the Course

We aim to go through the Bible in the course recognizing how God intervenes in history, saving His people, culminating in Christ. Having gone through the entire course, the student is then equipped with the ‘big picture’ of God’s saving actions. The course also aims in allowing the Word to touch lives in order that our discipleship may be deepened.

Course Content

Our course will involve going through the entire Bible during the year and students must be committed to continuous daily reading of it to be part of the course.


There is no examination for this course although class participation through discussion and group work is expected as well as some written papers.
