The Old Testament Leading to Christ course at Immanuel High School is a course that covers both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. An in-depth study of the book of Genesis is followed by studying the life and events of Moses found in the book of Exodus. The remainder of the Old Testament up to the prophetic books is covered in summary form throughout the fall semester. The spring semester begins with a quick overview of the prophetic books in the Old Testament followed by a detailed study of the Gospel of Mark found in the New Testament. Throughout these studies, students use note taking skills, journaling, general class work, and projects to learn the material.
