Topic: Old Testament Theology Part 1
Instructor: Joe Fleener
Hosted by: Rolleston Baptist, Rolleston.
Many Christians are unfamiliar with the content of the Old Testament, let alone it’s historical setting and theological purpose for the covenant people of God. In part one of what is planned to be a three-part course we will look carefully at the first 17 books of the English Old Testament canon. In doing so we will aim to gain a better grasp of their historical setting and God’s purpose in revealing Himself as He has in these books for His covenant people – both Old and New. History and Theology will come together as we bask in the glory of God’s timeless revelation of Himself to His people.

Breakfast will be from 7:30am.
Both breakfast and the Roving Classroom will be held at our usual church venue – Rolleston Christian School, 571 Springston Rolleston Rd, Rolleston.
Please let us know by Friday, 07 August:
- How many from your church plan to attend the Roving Classroom?
- Who needs either rides from the airport, accommodation or both?
- How many plan to also attend the breakfast?
