About this course

This course is the first of a two-course series that is based on Dr. Heiser’s book, The Unseen Realm: Recovering the Supernatural Worldview of the Bible. Dr. Heiser starts with the Old Testament and takes a behind-the-scenes look at Chapters 1 through 22 to uncover what the Bible really says about the supernatural unseen world. You’ll journey into the ancient world of the Old Testament to learn about the historical and cultural milieu of the Bible’s original authors and audiences.
