Welcome to the Book of Hebrews class.



In this course you will study the book of Hebrews.  After a brief introduction addressing the historical arguments concerning date, authorship, to whom was it written, and canonicity, we will go on to examine the book and its teachings and comparisons concerning the New Covenant under Christ and the Old Covenant under the Mosaic Law.

How to study: Read the textbook and look up in the King James Bible all of the scripture references given in the textbook.  Only those references that are complete with book, chapter, and verse (example- Heb 12:6-9) are required reading.  Those references giving only book and/or chapter (example- Ps ch. 21) need not be referenced and read but may be read if you choose to do so.  Also, you need to read the entire book of Hebrews in the KJV, following along in the Bible as you go through the verse by verse commentary in the textbook.

Course Record: We do NOT keep any records for students who are Monitoring Only.  Therefore, if you want to keep track of your progress you may download and print out a copy of the Course Record Form on which you can record the minimum attendance and other information for this course.

The textbook is divided into eight sections. Not more than one section should be completed each week.  Even one lesson per week and a half would be reasonable. At the end of each section you will stop and take the Section Test that corresponds with the section you just finished studying. All Section Tests are “open book,” which means you may use your textbook while taking the tests.

    Minimum suggested attendance for the course is 8 weeks.
    Minimum suggested attendance per lesson is 1 week.

TESTING: If you fail a test, you SHOULD NOT attempt that test again on the same day.  You should restudy the textbook/workbook and find all of the correct answers to the questions missed and then retake the test not sooner than the next day.
If you missed any of the questions on any test, even though you have passed the test, then you should review the section corresponding to that test and look up the correct answers to any questions answered incorrectly before going on to study the next lesson in the course.

Once you have completed all sections of the textbook and passed all of the corresponding tests, and found the correct answers to any questions missed on any test, then you will Retrieve the Password and, upon receiving the Password, take the Final Test for the course.  Final Test is "closed book" and you must submit the Final Test Contract Form to receive the password before taking the test.  There is a 20 minute time limit on the test.  You will see a time remaining clock in the upper right hand corner of the test screen.  Time does not start until your first question comes on the screen.

-  If you fail the final test then you need to restudy both the textbook and all of the section tests and then retake the final test.  It is suggested that you give one day to study and then retake the test on the next day.  Repeat this process until you pass the Final Test.
If you miss any questions on the Final Test, even though you have passed the test, then it is suggested that you review the textbook and all of the section tests and find the correct answers in the textbook to the questions you missed. A copy of each of your section tests was sent to you and they will have all of the correct answers on them for comparison purposes so you will know you have found the correct answers in the study materials for all missed questions.  This process is suggested because it will afford you the best opportunity to gain the most out of your study of this course.

You will now continue to the class.
