Old Testament Survey

What is Old Testament Survey?

Our desire is to give Christians the equipment they need, like King David, to hide the word in their hearts so they might not sin against God (Psalm 119:11). Our Old Testament Survey provides some basic information to help people understand how every book of the Old Testament fits into God’s big story. We cover a few tips for studying each individual book as well as some examples of how Jesus can be found in each book of the Old Testament. We are excited that you have decided to learn with us about the ancient, timeless, beautiful, and mysterious word of God.

Check out our other Abide Conferences as well.


The Old Testament was originally structured in 3 primary groups: Law, Prophets, Writings. A further explanation of this order can be found in the handbook.
