Download or read book Christian Doctrine and the Old Testament written by Gary A. Anderson and published by Baker Academic. This book was released on 2017-04-18 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Old Testament offers a rich palette of ideas, images, and narratives that help us unpack some of the more compact and opaque theological ideas of the New Testament. In conversation with both Christian and Jewish interpreters, prominent scholar Gary Anderson explores the exegetical background of key Christian doctrines. Through a deeper reading of our two-Testament Bible, he illustrates that Christian doctrines have an organic connection to biblical texts and that doctrine can clarify meanings in the text that are foreign to modern, Western readers. Anderson traces the development of doctrine through the history of interpretation, discussing controversial topics such as the fall of man, creation out of nothing, the treasury of merit, and the veneration of Mary along the way. He demonstrates that church doctrines are more clearly grounded in Scripture than modern biblical scholarship has often supposed and that the Bible can define and elaborate the content of these doctrines.
Download or read book Old Testament Theology and the Rest of God written by Nicholas J. Haydock and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2016-04-12 with total page 106 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Rest is a largely neglected theme escaping Old Testament studies, yet is notably prominent in the text itself, arising at many of the key moments of the Old Testament--the creation, the flood, the conquest and exile of the land, the covenant with David, and the construction of the temple. Haydock explores the ways in which God's rest interacts with the direction of the narrative, noting also its role in shaping both Israel's worship and their messianic expectation. In this fascinating study, Haydock considers the importance and place of rest in the ancient Mesopotamian worldview, arguing that Israel's theology of rest played an important part in their message to the nations. This message of a sovereign and gracious God offering his rest to all peoples contrasts sharply with the nations' false perception of how "rest" was to be experienced and enjoyed.
Download or read book The Real Scriptures of God Old Testament written by James Platter and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2012-11 with total page 1139 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Inside the covers of this book you will find the Real Scriptures of the Christian churches. Many church leaders know that other Christian churches hold to these books but they are only willing to state what they have been brain-washed to believe, that is about the other inferior books: It isn t in the canon (of scripture) formed of course by the early Catholic Church at various stages and Councils from the fourth century A.D. therefore no one has the right to change what is in the canon of scripture and the Catholic Church changed it in their councils not in agreement of other Christians but to hide their offence at the words of God. They would not even imagine that different churches have different scriptures and assume that the correct canon of scripture must be the one first declared by the Catholic Church and its priests but other priests must be considered demented or apostate, but they are not affected by the changes they made to the canon of Scripture over many centuries. They will not consider the canons of Orthodox Churches or others because they vary in different regions of the world. So is European Christianity based in the Vatican City right about all its holy scriptures while everyone else s church scriptures are false scriptures? Ethiopia it seems got most books of scripture right even with their translation into an ancient language! The Real Scriptures , edited by James Platter above, a layman who formerly studied the scriptures for many years with the Baptist Bible Fellowship in San Dimas, California in the United States, but now rejects the reduced 1627 A.D. Version of the KJV Bible, and formally learned the Greek language of the New Testament at Capernwray Missionary Fellowship, Moss Vale, N. S. W. Australia under the Reverend Alan Catchpoole in 1973.
Download or read book An Old Testament Theology of the Spirit of God written by Wilfred Hildebrandt and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2019-08-19 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Wilf Hildebrandt carefully explores the meaning of "the Spirit" in the Old Testament. He examines the role of God's Spirit in creation, in the establishment and preservation of God's people, in prophecy, and in Israel's leadership. He unveils the central role that the Spirit plays in creatively bringing about the directives of God. Through the Spirit, God brings order out of chaos, ushers the invisible into reality, makes a separation between the sacred and the profane, enables specific people to meet particular needs, and supersedes natural laws. This work sheds light on the Spirit of God in both the Old Testament and the New Testament.

Download or read book God s Righteousness and Justice in the Old Testament written by Jože Krašovec and published by Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing. This book was released on 2022-09-06 with total page 610 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A semantic study of God’s righteousness and justice in the Hebrew Bible that draws exegetical, theological, and philosophical conclusions about the character of God and God’s relationship with humanity. God’s work of creation and salvation for the good of Israel, humanity, and the world manifests the nature of God’s being. Thus, if we can understand God’s characteristics of righteousness and justice, we can better understand God. In the Hebrew Bible, these aspects of God are not expressed by abstract concepts but by semantic elements within literary structures. From this premise, Jože Krašovec undertakes the present study to put semantics into dialogue with exegesis and theology to illuminate exactly how God’s righteousness and justice in the Old Testament should be understood. In the first part of the book, Krašovec analyzes occurrences of the Hebrew root ṣdq (meaning righteous) and other synonyms, working systematically through the entire Old Testament canon. In the second part, he builds off this lexical study with a more broadly exegetical, theological, and philosophical exploration of guilt, punishment, mercy, forgiveness, and reconciliation. Krašovec concludes, among other things, that the biblical writers use “righteousness” as an expression of God’s affection for faithful people, especially those in distress because of persecution. God’s righteousness therefore exists in the Hebrew Bible in relation to the righteousness of human individuals and communities. Justice—whether in the form of forgiveness for the penitent or punishment for those who have hardened their hearts against God—is always carried out with the goal of building better community among God’s people.

Download or read book Look to the Rock written by ALEC MOTYER and published by Inter-Varsity Press. This book was released on 2020-05-21 with total page 308 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Bible is one book, not two separate testaments; so the Old Testament is essential for understanding the New. In this stimulating book on the Old Testament background to Christ, Alec Motyer shows how Jesus is the king expected, who brings in the kingdom looked for in the Old Testament; is both the image and the Word of God; conquers sin and death, and brings the disordered creation to its prefect consummation. To neglect the Old Testament, the author maintains, is to have an impoverished view of the glory of Christ.

This bestselling 14-panel foldout chart examines types, parallels and illustrations of Jesus throughout the Old Testament, including men such Melchizedek, King David, Adam, Noah, Abraham, Joseph, and many others.

Students will discover how their lives can also point to Christ. Size: 8.5x 5.5 unfolds to 38 long. Fits inside most Bible covers. Christ is the key to what God had been pointing to in all the history of God's people.

Christ in the Old Testament pamphlet shows how the Old Testament anticipates, reveals, promises, and foreshadows Christ, featuring types and illustrations of Jesus. The pamphlet reveals: 13 Old Testament men who foreshadowed Jesus A Scriptural time line of their placement in history Summaries of their lives and significance Charts comparing ways their life events and actions paralleled Christ or his coming Life application questions The 13 men in the Old Testament whose life foreshadowed Christ include: Adam Noah Abraham Melchizedek Joseph Moses Joshua Samuel David Elijah & Elisha Zerubbabel & Joshua Throughout the Old Testament, God provided glimpses into the character and nature of the Messiah through typologies--significant biblical characters whose actions or events symbolically correspond with or contrast to the life ofChrist. Here are a few examples of Christ in the Old Testament: ADAM Adam's actions brought consequences to his children, causing them to inherit sin and death (Genesis 3: 16-19) Christ's actions brought consequences to God's children, causing them to inherit righteousness and life (Romans 5: 12-19, 1 Corinthians 15: 20-22, 45-49) NOAH Noah offered a sacrifice of blood (Genesis 8: 20-9: 6) Christ offered himself as a sacrifice (1 Peter 1: 18-19) MOSES Surrounding the birth of Moses, innocent children killed by Pharaoh (Exodus 1: 22) Surrounding the birth of Jesus, King Herod killed innocent children in Bethlehem (Matthew 2: 16) JOSHUA Joshua led god's people to rest in the Promised Land (Joshua 21: 44) Jesus' followers are led into rest in this new creation (Hebrews 4: 1) SAMUEL Samuel's mother Hannah was blessed by the High Priest Eli before the birth of Samuel (1 Samuel 1: 17) Mary, the mother of Jesus, was blessed by an angel before the birth of Jesus (Luke 1: 30)
Download or read book Escaping Out of the Matrix written by Dr. Steven Christ and published by Page Publishing Inc. This book was released on 2022-12-12 with total page 361 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: I felt an urgency in writing this particular book as most of us are lost in a world that we no longer recognize, and we are all in desperate need of answers and guidance. The fact is, we have all been lied to and deceived as to who the god of the Old Testament is. Yahweh, Jehovah, and all those names for God in the Old Testament all belong to God the Father of Christ. We were taught that the god of the Old Testament--Yahweh--is the same God in the New Testament--the Father. This is a lie, and this is the greatest deception ever played out on mankind. All western religions have taught us that we are worthless, guilty sinners that must be condemned and punished. This is a lie that the church has instilled in our mass consciousness to control and enslave humanity. The truth is you are not the sinner. You are not the egoic mind or the body. You are the Spirit--an extension of God the Father Himself. The spirit is the only part of you that God the Father created, so this is the only part of you He sees. He does not look at your carnal mind or body, for He knows it was made in corruption.Gnostic Sacred text, specifically the Secret Book of John, tells us God the Father created man's eternal, perfect spirit while the god of the Old Testament--Yahweh--made the physical world that we see; he assembled man's soul, which imprisons the Spirit of God the Father through the process of reincarnation, karma, sin, and guilt. He created the body to give man an expiration date, which is death. This limits our time here in this world as he feared man gaining gnosis--knowledge of our true identity, the power within us, and how to use it. This is why Yahweh created the egoic carnal mind at enmity against God the Father--as he does not want us to awaken to the Truth of who we really are: an eternal, unchanging, innocent holy son of God the Father. God the Father only creates what is spiritual and eternal. Yahweh only creates what is physical; everything in it deteriorates, decays, and dies.This world and everything in it all belongs to Yahweh; all governments, kingdoms, world leaders, and megacorporations belong to him. Christ and God the Father's kingdom is spiritual. They want nothing of this physical world. The truth is the god of the Old Testament--Yahweh is a corrupt, egoic lesser god that wants to be worshiped by the whole world as God the Most High, the Father of Christ.In this book, I use Bible scriptures and sacred Gnostic text to discuss, show, and prove who God the Father is, who the god of the Old Testament is, and who we really are. Our true origins are documented in sacred Gnostic text, which the church desperately tried to destroy and eliminate from our recorded history. I will go over how the god of the Old Testament was created and how he has deceived the world to usher in his one-world government, currency, and religion, all worshiping him.The rulers of the world know that there is a great awakening happening throughout the world, and this is their greatest fear. They know that if we awaken the Spirit within, our Christ consciousness, they will lose their power and control over us; they will no longer be able to deceive, manipulate, and control us through fear, and their beast system will eventually collapse. This is why there is a war on consciousness. They are doing everything in their power to ensure we do not awaken to the truth.In this book, I reveal many truths that will empower you through the troubling times ahead. Knowing your true self, knowing the power within and how to use it, knowing the Father, knowing how to escape Yahweh's world matrix of reincarnation--this is your true power. I give you concepts, ideas, exercises, and tools that you need to awaken your true self: the divine Spirit within. These tools will help you eliminate most of your karma so you may escape Yahweh's matrix of reincarnation to ascend back to God the Father's kingdom in heaven. Yes, reincarnation was in the Bible; they took it out to control the people through fear of going to hell for eternity.
Download or read book The Books of the Old Testament in Your Palm written by Ayuba Mshelia, and published by Christian Faith Publishing, Inc.. This book was released on 2022-11-30 with total page 170 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The book is about introductions to the books of the Old Testament of the Bible, which is a compendium of God's divine Message to mankind that is uniquely written by forty divinely select people as His spokesmen. How many of these forty select men wrote the Tanakh or the Old Testament? This synopsis is a guide to the types of questions asked in writing this book. Who, for example, is the author of the Torah or the Pentateuch? Are all the books written by one person? Or are there others? What are the themes and purposes of each book? Does the difference in the arrangement and number of books between the original Hebrew Tanakh and our Old Testament make any difference to its being canon or faith? What are "the books of the kingdoms?" Why don't you see such titles in the Old Testament? What are the themes of some of the poetical books? For instance, why do good and righteous people suffer and the ungodly prosper? Does God care? How was the first ancient attempt of a holocaust foiled by Hadassah, also known as Esther, a beautiful Jewish orphan who became the queen of King Ahasuerus of Persia? What happened to the culprit? Why was the four-hundred-year period of the judges the most ungodly and apostate in Israel's history. Why was the Davidic covenant threatened by Bathsheba's marriage and Absalom's insurrection? What is your take on Daniel's "seventy weeks" prophecy? (Dan. 9:24). What does the phrase "seven weeks, and threescores and two weeks" mean to you as used in Daniel's prophecy? What about "A time, times, and a half" (Dan. 12:7) appearing in Daniel's prophecy? What does Ezekiel's vision about the "valley of the dry bones" coming to life mean to Israel and to you as a believer? The Old Testament begins with the story of creation and life but ends in Malachi (4:6) with a divine threat of a curse. Are you free from that curse as an individual or still under it? These are the many compelling and poignant questions laboriously dealt with in the book.

Download or read book Old Testament Prophecies That Prove That Jesus Christ Is the Only Savior of the World written by Garry L. Lybeck and published by Christian Faith Publishing, Inc.. This book was released on 2022-08-29 with total page 226 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book unequivocally reveals the biblical truth that Jesus Christ is the ONLY Saviour of the world and clearly refutes the popular but erroneous belief that there are "many ways to God". Jesus Christ if exclusive! He and He alone is the only way to God and eternal life. As the Scriptures explicitly state: "No one can come to the Father except through Jesus Christ. He that has the Son, has that life, and he that does NOT have the Son, does not have that life. There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven . . . by which we must be saved.! Following prophecies from the very beginning of the Bible to the end (from creation to consummation), the author clearly underscores this fact as the "undeniable proclamation of the Holy Scriptures"!
Download or read book Theology of the Old Testament written by Walter Brueggemann and published by Fortress Press. This book was released on 2005 with total page 800 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this powerful book, Walter Brueggemann moves the discussion of Old Testament theology beyond the dominant models of previous generations. Brueggemann focuses on the metaphor and imagery of the courtroom trial in order to regard the theological substance of the Old Testament as a series of claims asserted for Yahweh, the God of Israel. This provides a context that attends to pluralism in every dimension of the interpretive process and suggests links to the plurality of voices of our time.
Download or read book The Problem of War in the Old Testament written by Peter C. Craigie and published by Eerdmans Publishing Company. This book was released on 1978 with total page 136 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The predominance of war in the Old Testament troubles many Christians. However it is an issue that must be faced, says Peter C. Craigie, because it has serious ramifications for contemporary Christian attitudes about war. Professor Craigie categorizes the problems into two kinds - personal and external. The personal problems arise from the Christian's attempt to grapple with the emphasis on war in a book fundamental to faith. Three areas are considered here: the representation of God as warrior; God's revelation of himself in a book which preserves an extensive amount of war literature; and the seemingly conflicting ethics taught in the Old Testament and the New Testament. The external problems are critiques against the Bible and the Christian faith, based on the war-like nature of the Old Testament and the close association between Christianity and war throughout history. Only by examining and understanding the problem of war in the Old Testament will Christians be able to respond intelligently to attacks on their faith, to educate their youth in the nature of war, and to influence modern attitudes toward war. Peter C. Craigie was Academic Vice-President of the University of Calgary, professor of religious studies, and authored The Book of Deuteronomy in the New International Commentary on the Old Testament series (Eerdmans). "Dr. Craigie is acutely aware of the ethical problems posed by his subject, and his study should be helpful to others who are equally aware of these problems. I am glad to commend this book." - F. F. Bruce University of Manchester "Professor Craigie approaches a difficult subject in an irenic, open manner, conveying both his grasp of the subject matter and his deep concern as a theologian and churchman for helping lay people think about a troubling problem in a fresh way. . . . Any person or group seeking to wrestle with the problem of war in the Old Testament will find Craigie's thoughtful study one of the most helpful resources available." - Patrick D. Miller, Jr. Princeton Theological Seminary
Download or read book A Guide to Old Testament Bible Study written by Helen W. Driscoll and published by Xulon Press. This book was released on 2008-09 with total page 306 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The material in A Guide to Old Testament Bible Study has been rewritten many times during 46 years of teaching high school students in Mid-City / Crescent City High School. Those who were never before Bible students began to take an interest in God's Word because they saw the purpose running through it. Every year, the Holy Spirit used this material to help some become born-again believers. The study contains two major emphases: the history of early man (although not written as a history book, every bit of history in the Bible is true) and the Messiah (the mission of the Messiah promised in Genesis 3:15 is unfolded and developed throughout this study). This book will strengthen your faith in the Bible as God's Word, and help you to help others. Isaiah 40:8 - "The grass withereth and the flower fadeth, but the Word of our God shall stand forever." Born in Marlowe, Tennessee, Helen Wilson Driscoll graduated magma cum laude from Carson-Newman College in Jefferson City, Tennessee in 1941, with a B.A. in Greek (4 years of study), including three years of Bible study. In 1944, she graduated from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary with the Master of Theology degree (including three years of Bible study and Greek, and two years of Hebrew). She then served on the seminary faculty, teaching Greek for three years. Married to J. Paul Driscoll in 1948, Mrs. Driscoll helped her husband build the Mid-City / Crescent City Baptist Church, where they served for 58 years. In 1956, they founded the Mid-City / Crescent City Baptist High School, where she served in administration and taught high school Bible classes for 46 years. She has authored two other books, Around the World in Fifty Days, and God's Redemptive Plan Revealed in the Old Testament
