A working knowledge of the Torah is essential for every serious student of the Scriptures. Presented in an engaging and accessible manner, even while digging into difficult and complicated matters at a sophisticated level, The Torah Story Video Lectures by Gary Schnittjer feature 29 lessons on 4 DVDs. The lectures emphasize the content of the text itself, moving beyond debating dates and theories of authorship into understanding how these five key books of the Bible help us understand the story of salvation.

A companion to The Torah Story textbook, The Torah Story Video Lectures provides a model for how to read Scripture intertextually. It leaves no doubt as to the overarching unity of the message and composition of the Pentateuch.

Accessibly formatted and focused on the most significant topics and discussions in the textbook, The Torah Story Video Lectures is designed with the learner in mind, and each lecture is approximately 15 to 20 minutes. These lectures are an indispensable resource for students and independent learners alike.
