Some people find the Old Testament to be confusing, out of date, and essentially replaced by the New Testament. They are missing out. The Old Testament offers us a grand narrative that reveals God’s work, God’s purposes, and God’s wisdom.
Christopher J. H. Wright fits the pieces together and shows us the coherent whole. Using seven key sentences drawn straight from the Old Testament, he connects the dots and points us toward Jesus.
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”
“All peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
“You shall have no other gods before me.”
“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news.”
Such sentences as these are not merely beautiful or helpful (though they are that). They are part of the great drama of Scripture, the story of God’s plan of redemption that embraces all nations and the whole of his creation. Wright starts from the beginning, describing God’s promises and covenants with his people and his mission to bless the world. At the end of this short survey, readers will clearly see God’s faithfulness and love for his people and will understand how the Old Testament scriptures prepared for the identity and mission of Jesus as Messiah, Savior, and Lord.
In this grab bag, we have 10 e-books from the Old Testament library Bible commentaries series which were published by Westminster John Knox Press. The prices that the publisher has provided are under each ebook cover.
Hannah is the daughter of a prosperous beekeeper in Rehov, one of the largest cities in the Jezreel Valley during the time of Elisha the prophet. After she experiences the horrors of a Syrian raid on Rehov, she is captured and taken to Damascus. She becomes a slave in the household of Naaman, the commander of the Syrian army and the king’s personal bodyguard–the very man whose orders have changed her life forever!
How Hannah reacts to Naaman’s own life-altering news is one of the most instructive accounts in the Old Testament. This carefully-researched fictional scenario prepares the reader for SERVES YOU RIGHT: LOVING THOSE WE’D RATHER HATE. No major book on Naaman has been published in over 100 years. Yet, this important biblical narrative teaches us a timely lesson in a world filled with hatred: God extends His mercy to His worst enemies. And to ours.
