Who are these courses for?
Offered by the Diocese of Oxford as part of its Local Ministry Programme, these courses are for those training as Licensed Lay Ministers (LLMs) or for ordination, and also a growing number of people with a passion to learn more about their faith, about God and our place in his world. Perhaps you want to explore something new, become better equipped or dig a bit deeper into what you believe and why? Simply select your course and sign up.
COURSE AIMS TO DEEPEN UNDERSTANDING OF THE OLD TESTAMENT AND HOW WE MIGHT BEST ENGAGE WITH IT AS CHRISTIANS TODAY.
Areas of focus will include the Psalms and the book of Job, as well as a selection of other particularly challenging passages in the Old Testament canon. We will explore how we might study the Old Testament and use it in contexts such as prayer and preaching. The course assumes a level of prior introductory learning and is designed for those who have already attended an Introduction to the Bible course or similar.
This course will be delivered online. Learning materials (videos, guided reading and online tasks) for week 1 will go live on Friday 16 April. You will then work through these materials at your own pace, in time for your first group tutorial on Wednesday 21 April. Learning materials for future weeks will be released each Friday, for you to work through ahead of each subsequent tutorial. Bookings will close on Wednesday 14 April so that tutorial groups can be arranged before the course begins.
You will work on learning materials in our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), Moodle. You will need to be set up on Moodle to access the course.
