Old Testament Catechesis, Catechumen Edition, Second Edition
Old Testament, Catechumen Edition, is intended for
✦Teaching youth the important Old Testament stories that point forward to Christ. The first five books of the Old Testament—known as the Pentateuch or the Torah—are the foundation of the Old Testament. These books of Moses include the narrative of man’s creation in the image of God, his fall into sin, the flood, the tower of Babel, the stories of the patriarchs, God’s deliverance of Israel from bondage in Egypt, the giving of God’s Law, and the first promises of the Gospel of our salvation in Christ. The first twenty lessons focus on these stories. The rest of the Old Testament narratives and the preaching of the prophets cannot be understood apart from these stories. The twelve remaining lessons survey important narratives from the historical books of the Old Testament that follow the Pentateuch.
