Overview of the OLD TESTAMENT

(3 customer reviews)



So you want to understand the Old Testament but don’t have 3 years to read it through in detail?  This is one of those overviews that my Bible professors are rolling their eyes over, or applauding.  We’re not sure which.  This 70 minute Old Testament Overview is like an appetizer, designed to satisfy only a little of your appetite.  Then the hope is that you’ll want to explore more deeply, extraordinary texts such as Deuteronomy, that Jesus quoted so often.  In 70 minutes, you’ll get a feel for  the whole arc of the Hebrew Scriptures, exploring the historical, political, geographical context, what to look for as you read further in your own study. Launching with the Patriarchs, the Overview guides you next through the Exodus, the establishment of the nation of Israel, what role Judges played and why, how a Monarchy arose.  (I thought Yahweh was the King?!)  You’ll see why a completely new office needed to arise:   the unstoppable prophets.  I challenge you not to be moved when the people go into a reverse Exodus, called the exile. Through it all is this remarkable thread of God’s enduring covenant with His people.

    Thank you Bible Roads for opening our eyes to events of The Old Testament in a concise way. This hour revealed to me the promise of God’s love for his people. Your audio delivery is easy to listen to and full of inspiration. I look forward to ordering other products that give me an insight into our Holy Scriptures.

    So thoughtful of you to write and delighted to hear you enjoyed the Old Testament overview. We have so much to be grateful to the Jewish people for their devotion to God’s Law through the centuries. A recent trip to Israel only confirmed that and made me see how much Jesus’ life is built on the Hebrew Scriptures.
    With blessings in the New Year,

    My husband and I viewed your video on the overview of the Old Testament, and we were duly impressed with how you deftly covered all that complicated history so well! You tied the various historical aspects of the OT in such a way as to make it more understandable to us. We’re looking forward to listening to it again and again, as well as to your other videos.
