Learning About The Old Testament by Harman Allan

How does the Old Testament relate to your faith? Is it just a repository of thrilling stories and strange rules which have been superceded by the New Testament? Or is it a source of guidance and learning that gives us a vibrant Christian life?

Allan Harman here explains many different aspects of the Old Testament, particularly the importance of covenant in God's relations with humanity. This is seen at Creation, and with Noah and Abraham. He also covers the history of Israel, looking at the exodus and the covenant instituted at Sinai. In particular, he shows how the Messiah is anticipated.

Surveys are also given of what it meant to be a ruler or king in Israel as well as a prophet and a poet.
