Pentateuch - Pastor Jared Henson

The Pentateuch builds and establishes the foundational eschatology that looks toward the coming of a deliverer-King from Israel > Judah “in the last days” through its literary composition and content.

Below are a few topics we will discuss:

  • The Torah (Pentateuch) as the foundation
  • How can we know what a book so large means?
  • What does it mean to read the Pentateuch as a book?
  • Does the Pentateuch have a discernible structure?
  • The narrative and poetic structure of the Pentateuch
  • The structure of the Pentateuch and its eschatological outlook
  • Genesis 1-3 and its formative role in the message of the Pentateuch
  • Temple and rest (Gen. 1-2:4; 2:15)
  • Mankind’s Vocation(s)
  • Vocational failure and consequences for the world.
  • Death as “Exile” and Resurrection as “Return”, as a controlling paradigm
  • The promise to Abraham as God’s means to redeem ADAM “mankind”
  • The meaning of the Mosaic Law in the context of the Pentateuch.
  • Israel and the Nations “In the last days”, or “the Last Days” according to the Pentateuch
