Created by The Biblical Story

About this Learning Track

The BibleMesh Biblical Literacy Track will lead you through the various eras of the overarching story of Scripture so that you can see how Christ is revealed from Genesis to Revelation. This track offers a survey of both the Old Testament and the New Testament and also includes a treatment of the intertestamental period. This track is suitable for both high school and college students or for anyone who wants to know the Bible better.
