(BI-101) Old Testament Survey I (Pentateuch)
Course Description

Ten lectures and personal work projects covering the Books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. These projects guide the student through a survey emphasizing the historical, dispensational, and practical teachings of the first five books of the Bible.

Introduction To The Course

What is the Pentateuch?

The Bible is divided into two main divisions: the Old Testament (Genesis- Malachi); and the New Testament (Matthew- Revelation). The Old Testament is divided into four parts: The Law (Genesis- Deuteronomy); History (Joshua- Esther); Poetry (Job- Song of Solomon); and Prophecy (Isaiah- Malachi). In this course, we will be studying the Law, the first five Books of the Old Testament. The Law is also called the Pentateuch which simply means “5 Books.”

(2.) The expression "My spirit shall not always strive with man" speaks of the ministry of the Holy Spirit mentioned in _________________ and the ___________________ of man's heart through __________________ as expressed in Ephesians 4:17-19.

4. When God said "it repenteth me" in verse 7, presents God's ___________________________ ___________________ and not His instability.

5. The use of the word "grace" in verse 8, proves that Noah was not righteous in himself. Therefore, we conclude that the description of him in verse 9 means that: "just" refers to his _______________; "perfect" refers to his ___________________; and "walked with God" means he was in _________________________.

6. Scholars believe (using the conservative 18 inch cubit) that the measurements of the Ark would be approximately 400 ft. long; 75 ft. wide; and 45 ft. high. An interesting fact is the word used in verse 17 for “pitch” is “kopher” which is the same word used for “atonement” in Lev. 17:11. The word simply means a _________________.

7. Noah, his wife, his sons and their wives along with all the animals that entered into the Ark had full assurance of their safety because of the __________________ God made with them.

Others see these two birds as types (pictures): the raven as a type of Satan going to and fro; and the dove as a type of the ___________________________________.

6. In Chapter 8, verse 20, we find the first mention of the word ________.

(7.) In Chapter 9, verses 1 through 17, we find the long range agreement between God and Noah which is called the Noahic Covenant. It includes a promise that the earth would never be destroyed by flood again (v.11). The sign, or token, of this covenant was the _____________________.

8. This covenant also promised the eating of meats (v.3), the sanctity of ________________ and ________________________________.

9. Since the human race progressed through the 3 sons of Noah, the meanings of their names and the prophesy given by Noah in verses 25-29 give much light on their future generations. Canaan, the son of Ham, (“submissive one”) would be in servitude. Shem (“name renown”) would Father the _____________________ , the choice of God. Japheth (“enlarge”) would father the Gentile race and find a place in God’s promise to the Jews through the work of _________________________.

Chapter 10

1. Comparing verse 1 with verse 32, we see how the sons of Noah produced the _________________ of the earth.

2. History has proved that the descendants of Japheth became the nations of: Gomer (Aryans); Magog (Russia); Madai (Medo/Persia); Javan (Greeks) and Tiras (Tyre). BUT, verse 5 defines all of these nations as the ___________________.

3. Verses 6-20 give the generations of Ham: Cush (Ethiopia/ Arabia/ Africa); Mizraim (Egypt); Phut (Inhabitants of the Red Sea area); and Canaan (Inhabitants of the Holy Land area [later occupied by Israelites] ). BUT, verse 8 mentions one son of Cush in particular named ___________________.

4. In the account of Nimrod, we see the first idea of a man __________________ other men. Also, in verse 10, we see the first mention of the word “________________" in the Bible, further advancing the idea of human rule.

(5.) The name of Nimrod's kingdom was Babel which means _____________________ (see Gen. 11:9).

6. As the generations of Shem are given in verses 21 through 31, special attention is given to Peleg, the son of Eber. Peleg means ________________. The importance will be seen in Chapter 11, verses 10 through 32, where God divides a godly line from among the people of the earth.

Chapter 11

1. Verse 1 uses two words: "language" and "speech." The importance of these two words are made clear in the original language. These words are literally ____________________________.

The “Godly Line”

God had promised that “the seed of woman” would come to redeem fallen man and bruise Satan’s head (Gen. 3:14-15). It is important to notice the line of descendants as it moves through the Biblical account from Adam to Christ.

The Genealogy of Christ in Luke 3:34-38

“... (6) Abraham, which was the son of (5) Thara, which was the son of Nachor, Which was the son of Saruch, which was the son of Ragau, which was the son of Phalec, which was the son of Heber, which was the son of Sala, Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of (4) Sem, which was the son of (3) Noe, which was the son of Lamech, Which was the son of Mathusala, which was the son of Enoch, which was the son of Jared, which was the son of Maleleel, which was the son of Cainan,Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of (2) Seth, which was the son of (1) Adam...”

Chapter 14

1. After the alliance of kings had captured Sodom and Gomorrah, we find the first use of the word _____________________ in verse 13 describing Abram.

2. Having rescued Lot, Abram was met by Melchizedek. More light is given on this mysterious priest of the Most High God in Hebrews 5 through 7, where he is presented as a type of _________________.

Melchizedek: In Hebrews Chapters 5 through 7, we notice the more perfect, eternal priesthood of Christ contrasted with the temporary Levitical priesthood given in the law. The precedent example is Melchizedek. He was a priest of God 600 years before the law was given to Moses and the Levitical (named for the sons of Levi who were separated for the work of this office) Priesthood was established. Christ existed eternally and preceded even the appearance of Melchizedek, proving that the eternal priesthood of Christ is higher than the temporary Levitical Priesthood. Some scholars believe that Melchizedek was a pre-incarnate appearance of Christ as a man. This is called a “theophany,” and is supported by such passages as Daniel 3:25; and Genesis 18.

Chapter 15

1. In verses 1 through 6, God appears to Abram in a vision and promises him an heir. In verse 6, we find the first mention of the words “believed” and “counted” in Scripture. Paul quotes and elaborates on this passage in Chapter 4 of his letter to the Romans to prove that Abraham was justified by _________________________.

2. A covenant was validated by laying out the pieces of scarified animals and the two parties passed through as a sign of agreement. In this instance (15:7-21), only God passed through symbolizing that this covenant was _________________________________.

Chapter 16

(1.) Chapter 16 gives the account of Hagar and Ishmael. It is evident that Abram and Sarai attempted to help the Lord fulfill His promise, but failed. This is the importance of an unconditional covenant. Paul, in Galatians 4:21-31, uses this account as a picture of _______________.

Chapter 17

1. Three things stand out in this chapter. (1) Abram’s name was changed to Abraham (father of a multitude); (2) the restatement of God’s covenant with Abraham; (30 the institution of circumcision. In Romans 4:1-12, Paul shows that circumcision was a _____________.

Chapter 18

1. It becomes evident that one of the three men who visited Abraham was _________________, who shared His divine plan of judgment for Sodom and listened to Abraham’s intercession.

Chapter 19

1. Lot’s position in Sodom, willingness to surrender his children to the Sodomites, and lack of influence upon his family, show the devastating effects of _______________.

2. Lot’s story ends in loss and shame. He lost his wife (Luke 17:32-33); and was shamed through his incestuous relationship with his two daughters producing the two nations of ________________________.

Chapter 20

1. Chapter 20 shows a reoccurrence of the same fault found in ________________________.

Chapter 21

1. The birth of Isaac is followed by a conflict with the child of bondage. Some Bible scholars view this as a picture of _______________________________________.

Chapter 22

(1. ) This chapter finds its climax in the promise given in verse 8. “God providing Himself a lamb” is a foreshadow of the ________________ (Isa. 53:3-8) of Christ and the __________________ (Heb. 11:17-19) of Christ.

Chapter 23

1. Sarah is unique among women in the Word of God because her ____________ is mentioned.

2. Abraham is known as the Father of the Jewish race according to the flesh; but because of his example of faith and obedience, he is also considered the Father of ___________________ _____________________ (Rom. 4:11; Gal. 3:6-9)


Chapter 24

(1.) Although unidentified by name here, this “eldest servant” of Abraham could have been ___________________________ (Gen. 15:2).

2. The placing of the hand under the thigh to seal an oath was a solemn ritual. It is later used by Jacob (Gen. 47:29). Language experts tell us that the word “thigh” is the Hebrew word ______________________ which injects more thought into this procedure.

3-6. In dispensational thought, many see a beautiful picture of the work of God in redemption and blessing in the story of Isaac and Rebekah. To them, the participants are viewed as types. A type is a divinely appointed picture of a future truth. For example: Isaac would be a “type” or picture of Christ in the former chapters when he is offered up by his father. Although the danger of unrestrained speculation is always present in the study of “types,” there are beautiful illustrations of the work of God given throughout Scripture. Christ used the “type” of the serpent in the wilderness (John 3:14-15), and Paul used the “types” Hagar and Ishmael (Gal. 4:22-31); and in Hebrews, we find the typology of the Tabernacle worship (Heb. 9:22-23). As you study the account of Isaac and Rebekah, see if you can identify who each participant could picture.

Parting Thoughts

Joseph is considered by some Bible scholars to be the most exact type of Christ in the Word of God. Others avoid the comparison for fear of over-speculation. Although Joseph is not declared in the New Testament as a type of Christ, there are some similarities which do exist. Those of you who are afraid of “spiritualizing” a passage through the study of types, consider this a study of comparisons in the life and ministries of Joseph and Christ. (1) loved by father, hated of his brethren; (2) sent to brethren who conspired against him; (3) stripped, put into a pit and sold for silver; (4) Gentile bride; (5) forgave, received and restored brethren; (6) ruled over all Egypt.

The “Godly Line”

God had promised that “the seed of woman” would come to redeem fallen man and bruise Satan’s head (Gen. 3:14-15). It is important to notice the line of descendants as it moves through the Biblical account from Adam to Christ.

The Genealogy of Christ in Luke 3:33-38

“... which was the son of (9) Juda, Which was the son of (8) Jacob, which was the son of (7) Isaac, which was the son of (6) Abraham, which was the son of (5) Thara, which was the son of Nachor, Which was the son of Saruch, which was the son of Ragau, which was the son of Phalec, which was the son of Heber, which was the son of Sala, Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of (4) Sem, which was the son of (3) Noe, which was the son of Lamech, Which was the son of Mathusala, which was the son of Enoch, which was the son of Jared, which was the son of Maleleel, which was the son of Cainan,Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of (2) Seth, which was the son of (1) Adam...”
