Journeywomen


Dec 7, 2020

On today’s episode of the Journeywomen podcast, we’re talking about the Old Testament with Dr. Jay Sklar. This conversation is going to help you see how the whole Bible points to Jesus! Dr. Jay Sklar is Professor of Old Testament and VP of Academics at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis. His doctoral research was completed under Professor Gordon Wenham and focused on the theology of sacrifice. He recently published a commentary on Leviticus in the Tyndale Old Testament Commentary series. Here you can find further resources he has put together on Leviticus, including suggestions on how to teach or preach on the book. Originally from Canada, Dr. Sklar met his wife, Ski, in the library at seminary, and to this day encourages any student wanting to be married to study hard.
