Lectures 1,2 – Genesis Bob Jones, Jr., LL.D.
All the truth of god
that is later developed or revealed exists in germ form in
the book of Genesis. As demonstrated in Exodus, Jehovah God
is a God who knows the condition of his people, who comes
down to deliver, who redeems by blood and power, who
supplies every need, who gives victory, who reveals His holy
character, and who dwells among his people. In Leviticus God
revealed laws to prepare and to secure the physical, moral,
and spiritual well-being of the people. Numbers can be
summed up in three words: wilderness, warfare, and
wandering. In Deuteronomy, Moses reminds the people of the
law and their call to holiness before God.

The Early Israelite
Lectures 1,2 – Joshua and Judges Carl Armendering, D.D.
Lecture 3 – Ruth J. Vernon McGee, Th.D.
Armendering states that the Lord promised Joshua that just
as He had been with Moses so He would be with him. There was
only one condition which Joshua had to meet. He was to obey
the word of God without deviation. Judges covers 300 years
of history from Joshua’s death to the death of Samson, the
last of 13 “Judges” sent by God to deliver His people. As
quoted by J. Vernon McGee, “The book of Ruth is a love
story.” This little book gives to us a picture of the
wonderful relationship that exists between Christ and his
Lectures 1 to 4 – I & II Samuel and I & II
Kings Harold B. Kuhn, Ph.D. Lecture 5 – I & II Chronicles
Gleason Archer, Jr., Ph.D.
I and II Samuel comes
out of the golden age of Hebrew literature and has four key
players in this great drama – Eli, Samuel, Saul, and David.
You’ll see how the Lord is constant and faithful in this
period of transition as Israel becomes a monarchy. I and II
Kings is the continuing account of the origin, the rise and
the development of the monarchy of Israel. Gleason Archer
Jr. says, “Whereas Kings is dominated by a prophetic
interest, I and II Chronicles is characterized by a more
definitive priestly point of view.” The purpose was that the
true greatness of Israel consists in her relationship to
Jehovah as a worshipping faithful and obedient congregation.
The Post Exilic Period

Lecture 3 – Esther Carl Armendering, D.D.
is the historical record of the first return of the captives
to the land of Palestine. There under the prophetic
leadership of Haggai and Zechariah, they would rebuild the
temple. Nehemiah is a stirring record of how one man
impelled by God accomplished what everyone had said was
impossible – he rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem. God placed
Esther, an Israelite, as the new queen to accomplish hi
gracious purposes. She would be used by God to thwart the
plan of the evil Haman, who had tricked the king into
passing a law that would kill Esther’s people.
Lectures 1,2 – Job Daniel Fuller, Jr., Th.D.
The book of Job is
God’s answer to “Why should the righteous suffer?” The
Psalms are the finest expression of human devotion and
delight in the Almighty God. To read the Proverbs is to be
ready for life. To believe them is to be safe from the
snares in life’s pathway. Ecclesiastes recognizes God
Himself as the highest value in His creation, and that the
truly meaningful life is the life lived in His service. Song
of Solomon represents an actual occurrence in Solomon’s life
in which he experienced a pure and holy love. Lamentations
is a sequel to the prophecy of Jeremiah. This hymn of
intense sorrow shows men inspired by God’s spirit as they
seek to reach up to Him.

Isaiah prophesied in Judah during the reigns
of four kings and during great crises. Expect to find
practically every aspect of biblical truth. Jeremiah’s duty
was to proclaim the judgment of the Lord and to advise the
king and the people to submit to the enemy. Ezekiel was one
of the three prophets of the period of the captivity. Here
is a book that combines sobering history and stirring
prophecy. Daniel deals with three significant
interpretations of dreams, and visions about the future.
Daniel shows a God of precision and power, a God active and
involved in history. 56
“salvation.” He married an unfaithful wife whom he forgave
and redeemed. Joel introduces the great prophetic concept of
“The Day of the Lord” and gives us the prophecy about the
Holy Spirit. Amons means “bearer of a burden.” He proclaimed
the coming destruction of neighboring nations, Israel, and
Judah. In Obadiah, prideful Edom hated Israel and their doom
was predicted. God calls Jonah to preach repentance to the
people of Ninevah, the hated and evil Assyrians. Micah,
preached God’s judgment on Samaria and Jerusalem due to
their idolatry. Nahum predicts the doom of Ninevah, 150
years after Jonah. Habakkuk dialogues with God and receives
a vision of the pending woes to come from the Babylonians.
Zephaniah spoke of the great day of the Lord that was to
come to all nations and calls Jerusalem to repent. Haggai
returned after the captivity, and laid the foundation of the
temple in Jerusalem. Zechariah also returned to encourage
the rebuilding of the temple. He prophesied how Jesus would
deliver Israel, be rejected, and return again. Malachi
brought God’s people a message of rebuke and promise. 57

Lectures 7,8 – John Merrill Tenney, Ph.D.
The gospel of Matthew brings before us “The Kingdom of
Heaven,” or the rule of the Heavens over this earth. You
will find Jesus presented as King, the one who fulfills
Scripture, the Messiah. Of the increase of His kingdom there
shall be no end! Mark presents the Lord Jesus Christ as the
servant of God and the servant of men. Mark records the call
from Christ to followers who would serve Him, and the
command of Christ to go and preach. Luke portrays Jesus as
the perfect man and uses the term “Son of Man.” Luke also
shows that Jesus is not only a perfect human but the divine
Son of God. The key verse of this gospel written by John is
found in John 20:31. “But these are written, that you might
believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that
believing you might have life through His name.” And this is
eternal life, that you might know Him, the only true God,

Lectures 3,4 – Romans Howard W. Ferrin, LL.D.
Lectures 5,6 – I Corinthians John Walvoord, Th.D.
Lectures 7,8 – II Corinthians L.E. Maxwell
The book of Acts is chiefly the chronicle of
the mighty missionary advance of the early church in its
obedience to the commands of the risen Savior. It shows the
true motive of missions, the best plans, and the secret
source of power for the task. This doctrinal book of Romans
states the basic principle of “justification by faith.” “For
I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power
of God unto salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew
first, and also to the Greek, for therein is the
righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith.” I
Corinthians teaches Christian conduct in a wicked world with
specific attention to the corruption that had crept into the
church in Corinth. Paul writes of marriage and
relationships, abiding in one’s call, the celebration of the
Lord’s Supper, spiritual gifts, the resurrection of Christ
from the dead and much more. In II Corinthians Paul defends
his ministry as there were many in the church at Corinth
still attacking his credibility. He is forced painfully to
vindicate his apostolic authority.
Lectures 1,2 – Galatians and Ephesians Arthur B. Whiting,
Th.D. Lectures 3,4 – Philippians and Colossians E. Schuyler
English, Litt.D. Lectures 5,6 – I & II Thessalonians John
Lectures 7,8 – I & II Timothy Bob Jones Jr., LL.D.
Galatians is the declaration of the glorious freedom
which Jesus has won for all believers. It defends the truth
of justification by faith alone, which imparts to us
incredible freedom in Jesus. Ephesians unfolds God’s
wonderful workmanship in fashioning a new and invisible
spiritual organism designed as the body of Christ. It
stresses true church unity. The purpose of Philippians is to
give thanks to the believers at Philippi for a gift that
they sent to Paul, and to correct friction that existed
there. Paul gives words concerning Christ as the believer’s
life, pattern, object, and strength. Colossians discloses
the fact that Jesus Christ is the head of the body which is
the church, and emphasizes that it is in Him that all the
fullness of the Godhead dwells. I & II Thessalonians contain
a rich presentation of the truth of God designed for young
believers. Paul writes about thanksgiving to God, the secret
of effective Christian service, the believer’s
sanctification, and the coming of the Lord. Some believed
that they were already in the tribulations of the day of the
Lord. Paul corrects this misapprehension and encourages them
to go on with the Lord. I & II Timothy are addressed to men
who have the responsibility for the administration of local
assemblies. These letters reveal God’s will regarding
doctrine, church administration, and discipline.
Lectures 1,2 – Titus and Philemon Frank
Paul put Titus in
charge of the church in Crete and gave him this letter of
instruction on how to do the work there. The letter to
Philemon from Paul asked him to take back his runaway slave,
Onesimus, who had met Paul and was converted to Christ. The
author of Hebrews wrote in order to encourage and energize
the Christian readers into a viable and active faith in
Jesus. It appears they had begun to lose heart and were in
danger of allowing unbelief to grow. James is a book that
speaks of works. It teaches that we are saved by faith only,
but saving faith never is alone. It is always accompanied by
good works. I Peter’s purpose is to strengthen and comfort
those believers who are called upon to bear severe testing
as a trial of their faith. II Peter warns against church
leaders allowing sin in the church for the sake of monetary
gain. Sin will bring blindness, and they will no longer look
for the Lord. I,II, and III John speak about fellowship, to
not belittle the deity of Jesus, to live righteously by
faith, to love one another, to resist false last days and
the conditions before the apocalyptic judgments fall. It
brings to a climax all the teaching regarding apostasy.
Revelation as a book of prophecy contains descriptions of
unique animals, angels, demons, beasts, harlots, and brides.
Christ is the central figure as it talks of the ages.
“Blessed is he that reads it and they that hear it and keeps
those things that are written therein.”

Lectures by Harold Lindsell, Ph.D. and Charles Woodbridge,
Lecture 1 Repentance These
courses provide a good understanding of the basic doctrines
of the Christian Faith. The distinctives of Christianity are
studied. Spiritual truths that form the foundation of the
Christian world are brought forth with resounding clarity.
The student is able to define why he believes as he does. It
is be the explanation of these truths the believer is able
to effectively explain and interpret the teachings of
Scripture to those met in every day life.

Lectures by Everett Harrison, Th.D.
Lecture 1 The Birth of Jesus
The Birth of Jesus,
Jesus is the most outstanding person in all of history, and
indeed is the central figure of all time. Everett Harrison
discusses the circumstances, important factors, and prophecy
surrounding His birth. His Early Life. We only have a
glimpse of Jesus’ boyhood and early life. Enough is told to
enable us to know that as a child Jesus had a normal life.
His Temptation. Jesus could not begin to do the work the
Father God had commissioned Him to do until He had passed
this severe test. His Early Ministry in Judeahad and
Galilee. Within a few months Jesus had labored in the city
of Jerusalem, in Samaria, and Galilee. He covered all the
main areas of Palestine at this early stage in His ministry.
His Teachings and Miracles. What are the basic teachings of
Jesus? What spiritual legacy has He left for us? Never a man
spoke like this man. The training of the Twelve Disciples.
The command of the Lord is, “Follow Me!” The future of
Christianity and God’s plan lay with twelve men chosen by
Jesus. Moving Toward Calvary. Lazarus is dramatically raised
from the dead by Jesus. He then turns to focus toward
Jerusalem while evil men began to plan His destruction. He
was the people’s champion as He entered the great city. The
Upper Room Discourse. Jesus called His disciples together to
a private place to eat the famous last supper. He washes
their feet, teaches them the Lord’s Supper, tells of the
Holy Spirit to come, says farewell, and goes tot he Garden
of Gethsemane to pray and wait. His Trial and Death. Jesus
stood before the leaders of his own nation, and before the
Romans, and then they crucified Him. His Resurrection and
Ascension. Every tear of sadness at His death is drowned out
by the shouts of joy at His resurrection. Jesus is alive! 62

Lecture 10 The Book of Revelation
What does “prophet” mean in the Word of God? What is the
extent of prophecy in the Old and New Testaments? There are
13 or 14 major areas upon which the light of the prophetic
word falls. Those predictions beginning in Genesis through
to the New Testament concerning the history and ultimate
destiny of the Hebrew People are called Hebraic prophecies.
The prophecies about the coming Lord Jesus are by far the
most important in all literature. The book of Daniel is the
only panoramic survey of the great empires of the world down
tot he end of the age. It has chronological prophecy
indicating the coming of the Lord. Jesus talked
prophetically concerning himself, the church, the Jews and
the fall of Jerusalem, the course of the age, the end of the
age, and of judgment to come. On the Mount of Olives during
Holy Week, Jesus delivered His last pronouncement to the
public in general. It is recorded in Matthew 24-24, Mark 13,
and Luke 21. In this last discourse Jesus prophesies on the
time before, during and after the Tribulation. I Corinthians
15 talks about the Resurrection. Is there certainty in the
resurrection of Jesus? What is its importance? Who is the
Antichrist, the supreme enemy of God? What will be his work?
What are his characteristics? Who are the two beasts that
come against God? We need the final book of triumph and
victory, Revelation. It is a book of conflict, of light over
darkness, between the powers of evil and Satan and Hell
against the power of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Galatians has a greater effect on us today than any
constitution of freedom given to any group of people. Paul
establishes his source for doctrine and confronts those who
preach anything other than justification by faith. Paul also
assures us of our standing with God and gives practical
advice for carrying on with daily life.

beginning to end, Paul speaks of joy and confidence and
affection for his fellow Christians. From prison, Paul
teaches the church at Philippi about a source of joy that
overflows irrespective of circumstances and the joy of
