Chapter 3 – The Biblical Basis: Old Testament

OBJECTIVES:

Upon completion of this chapter you will be able to:

  • Identify Old Testament examples of environmental analysis.

INTRODUCTION

The Bible is filled with examples of environmental analysis. It is a record of man’s environment on earth and his response to the influences of that environment. For example, the Bible analyzes the past, present, and future environments of man. It analyzes the spiritual condition of men and women apart from God and contrasts it with that of true believers. It also analyzes our spiritual enemies.

In this and the following lesson you will study Biblical examples of environmental analysis. It is impossible to analyze every reference relating to the subject because there are so many. For this reason only key passages have been selected as examples.

(Due to the study format used in this lesson, there is no “Key Verse,” “Self-Test,” or “For Further Study” section in this chapter.)

Read over the chapter study material and complete the self-test at the end. After this chapter is completed, mark complete and go to the next lesson.
