Course Description: This course will cover world and Biblical history from creation through the fall of Rome, beginning with the seven days of creation and ending with the demise of the last Western Roman Emperor in AD 476. We will explore the four oldest known civilizations: Egyptian, Sumerian, Harappan and Chinese and journey from there to the great empires of the Ancient Near East—from Egyptian and Akkadian to Assyrian, Babylonian, Hittite, Persian and more. Finally, we will visit the Greco-Persian Wars, Classical Greece, the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. Mixed in are empires and cultures from China, India, the Americas, and Africa beyond Egypt. Important historical events from both the Old and New Testaments will be covered as well. The study of ancient history allows us to understand where we have come from, why we are here, and how God has revealed Himself since the beginning of time. The knowledge gained in this study will also show us how the ancients’ attempts to shape their futures relate to our own actions in the present day.
