Description

The second sermon in our series; "Why?"

This week's scripture: John 13:31-38

This week we are discussing the Old testament. It is an amazing compilation of 39 different books that were written over a period of approximately 1000 years (from about 1500-400B.C.) and encapsulates the beginning of time to about 2500 years ago (400B.C.). The Old Testament sets the scene for Christ. Essentially, the Old Testament is the Jewish bible called the Tanakh. Among other things, it tells the story of God's promise to bless all the nations through Abraham and Sarah's son Isaac.

Did you know:
The Old Testament is complied into four sections (Pentateuch/Torah, history, wisdom books, and prophets). It is not a time-linear history.

The books in the Old Testament were written by more than one person. Even some individual books had more than one author. 

The word "testament" means covenant or promise and is referring to God's commitment to humanity.

The New Testament is not a continuation or add-on to the Old Testament.
