The Divine Service in the Old Testament
October 18, 2021-October 22, 2021
Was there a liturgy in the Old Testament? Was there preaching? Were there
sacraments? Was the service Law or Gospel? Was Christ present? Was the
Trinity worshiped? Is there a relation between the service in the Old
Testament and our divine service today? This course investigates these and
other questions as we examine the Pentateuch and other Scriptures to
determine the divine institution, practical order, ritual function, and
theological purpose of God’s service in the Old Testament.
