The outdated testomony has nice topics: construction and covenant. They embody subthemes: knowledge with regards to production; Israel's faith and the Davidic covenant below the final umbrella of covenant; and internationalism, which normally develops the subject of covenant and in part the topic of creation.

These themes cluster round a standard middle: Yahweh, the God of the outdated testomony. This God is portrayed in numerous roles, that have connected to them function expectancies for either Yahweh and people with whom he assumes dating. via contextual exegesis of key texts, we come to appreciate those roles and linked themes.

While the outdated testomony has its personal specific contributions to make to divine revelation, a lot of its fabric is reused within the New testomony to give an explanation for and validate the hot testomony message. via targeting the previous testomony, we discover ways to take pleasure in the large debt the hot testomony owes to the outdated in clarifying New testomony theological and ethical perspectives.

"This remarkable ebook grew out of a process lectures expounding a 'Biblical Theology of the outdated testomony for Pastors.' Who higher than my colleague, Leslie Allen, to jot down in this topic? He loves the outdated testomony and he has a pastor's middle (every Friday he places his Hebrew Bible down and visits our neighborhood medical institution as a chaplain). No possibility that this quantity will both promote the reader brief at the inherent value of the previous testomony or promote the reader brief on its importance within the context of Christian religion. And it does certainly satisfy either one of these expectations."
