It also can be used to show the class how the Old Testament books are grouped and how they are not in chronological order. Have your students group the books in their own scriptures on the page just before Genesis 1. The Hebrew words are what Jewish people use to refer to those things. For instance a Jewish person would call our Old Testament, the “Tanakh” rather than the Old Testament. Make sure you use the back of your throat when you say that.
When you download this, you will see it is in color and black & white. The black & white is nice because it can be blown up (cheaply) at the copy store and then you can use colored pencils and make it into a poster for your seminary wall.
