The course begins with the concept of monotheism and polytheism as presented in the Old Testament. This is followed by the revelation of God's name to man and the theology of creation. Israeli traditions, older and newer, are the next issue. The following is a series of theological concepts and concerns: angelic-demonology, the concept of law, faith, the Messiah, sin.
