The Hebrew Bible has a lot of “Game of Thrones,” in it. The book of Joshua is peak “G.O.T.” How we Christians, who are called to turn the other cheek, understand this book?
In the book of Deuteronomy we see the Law that was given in Exodus appropriated for a new generation. So how do we, in our own generation, appropriate these laws?
Leviticus and Numbers continue the story of Exodus. God has brought his people out of bondage in Egypt to Mount Sinai. In these books, we're still in the wilderness, and we learn that God is holy and that we are to be holy, too. What does this mean for theologians of the cross?
The book of Exodus contains the chief act of salvation of the Old Testament, and it's not simply an event in the past, this act of salvation is the paradigm of God's way with God's people even to this day.
There's a lot going on in the book of Genesis, but if there's one theme that runs the course of it's pages it's that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob keeps his promises to his people.
