Old Testament Wisdom

Old Testament WisdomAs some of you know I’m currently studying to get my Masters of Arts degree in Biblical Studies.  This means I’m in classes, and learning a bunch of stuff.  Here’s some of my favorite quotes from my Survey of the Old Testament class.

“Without the fall the cross is unnecessary.”

“You don’t teach the Old Testament as simply history, but also in a way that it has power in people’s lives.”

“When the pursuit of knowledge replaces the pursuit of God, a shipwreck is inevitable.”

“It took God one night to get Israel out of Egypt, but 40 years to get Egypt out of Israel.”

“What we call prosperity is not what God calls prosperity.”

What’s your favorite book in the Old Testament?

  1. Psalms and Proverbs are probably the ones I read the most out of the Old Testament, but I like the stories of the Old Testament the most. I think the story of Hosea and Gomer is my favorite.

  2. I don’t have a favorite book, but I am in love with the Old Testament, especially the feasts, and their meaning. I also enjoy Leviticus, and the common sense the laws have. Also having a knowledge of the Torah, Tabernacle, and Old Testament terminologies can really help a reader to understand the teachings of Jesus. Especially the Sermon on the Mount
