Having completed the first sections of the CS02 module with an on-line group video class this week, they are now moving into their focus on the Old Testament texts themselves, with elements addressing the Orthodox vision of Christ in the Old Testament, and a detailed look at a wide selection of Scriptural books and patristic commentaries that open up the Church's theological experience of what is revealed in these texts.
