The purpose of this course is to help students understand the history of the Jewish people from the call of Abraham, through the First Testament, between the Testaments, the New Testament, the Roman era, and Christian-Jewish history from Constantine through the Holocaust. This is God’s redemptive history of His people, both Jews and Christians.

Those who want to earn a Diploma in Hebraic-Christian Studies may do so by answering the questions at the end of each lesson and submitting their answers electronically through email as a Word Document. Students who are not interested in earning the diploma need not submit their answers.
