    The Book of Genesis is the first book of the Bible. Placed at the opening of the Hebrew Scriptures, Genesis is the first of the five books of Moses, known as the Pentateuch. Genesis is the book of beginnings. Genesis describes such important beginnings as the Creation, the fall of man, and the early years of the nation of Israel. The beginning of salvation history, the story of God and man, sin and grace, wrath and mercy, covenant and redemption also begins in the Book of Genesis. The Book of Genesis may conveniently be divided into four major parts: (1} the Creation and the early days of mankind, (2} the story of Abraham and Isaac, (3} the story of Jacob and Esau, and (4} the story of Joseph and his brothers. The first major part of the Book…

    The prophetic book takes its name after the prophet who received the vision. The name Obadiah means “servant of the LORD”. It is the smallest book in the Old Testament. There is no information about the author. Sanhedrin 39b (Talmud) said Obadiah was Ahab’s servant. Pseudo-Epiphanius said he was King Ahaziah’s military official (thus the book must have been written in 842 B.C.). John Calvin said he could have been an eyewitness to the destruction of Jerusalem which suggests that the book must…

    Paul's Salvation

    • 827 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Author: Paul is clearly the author of the book of Romans as it is stated in Romans 1:1 that he is the author of this book. Before Paul’s salvation, he was known as a great persecutor of the Christians the evidence of this would be in Acts 7:58, Acts 8:1, Acts 9:1-2, and Philippians 3:5-6 all of this scripture furthers the truth that Paul was known for being a persecutor of Christians at this time in his life. His salvation came at the Damascus Road in Acts 9 where his name changed from Saul to…

    Depravity In The Bible

    Total Depravity A God. A man. A woman. A fruit. A choice. A separation. A disease. One of the most widely known stories of the Bible is of Adam and Eve. It is the story of creation by God who gave Adam and Eve a single rule-- don’t eat the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. However, they do anyway. This cataclysmic event triggered the end of life as they knew and would change the future for all of us. Sin was released upon the earth like ink spilled over a white paper. This…

    Essay On Romans 15-13

    Hi everyone, This was an interesting topic. There is tons of information in the Bible, as well as in commentaries. There wasn’t that much in our text book that pertained to this passage of reading, Romans 14 – 15:13. The only thing Gundry (2012 p. 444) had to say on this topic of weak versus strong Christians was, “Paul indicates that believers must allow one another freedom to differ on ritual questions so long as damage is not done to weaker, uninformed people.” You can say that in a…

    Discernment on Exodus Being that this book is the second of the Old Testament, following Genesis, one would expect consistency in the story telling theme. Although all characters in Genesis were related through family ties, they all made part of varying stories that supported ultimately the same message. In the other hand, the book of Exodus is one that elaborates on one single character whose story extends to different events, which I feel concurred with Genesis’ message; loyalty to God that…

    The book of Ecclesiastes is somewhat an anomaly in the Bible. It focuses more on philosophy compared other books, but nonetheless still has a continuing focus on serving God. The work considers the meaning of life and how one is to go about living it. The author of Ecclesiastes is traditionally thought to be King Solomon, due to the references to being king in Jerusalem and son of David, and having great wealth and numerous written works (Bullock 183-85; Ehrman 203). Women are discussed in a…

    There are many different views on whether the biblical book of Romans accurately displays an accurate display of the gospel through the use of the “Roman Road” dialog. The Roman Road utilizes specific scriptures throughout the book and lays the foundation for the non-believer to get a glimpse of our sin and God’s grace and forgiveness. The method starts by declaring humans are sinful people, Romans 3:10 “as it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one;” Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and…

    The Book of Revelation is the last book of the Bible, and one that has been the topic of many debates over the years. Revelation is the prophetic book written by John the Apostle around A.D. 95, while he was exiled to the island of Patmos. The purpose of this book was to encourage Christians to remain faithful while we wait for Christ's return and to offer hope that we have the victory in the end. The key themes of this book include Christ's return, the faithfulness of Christians, God's…

    and which one is the correct view? First, facts will need to be gathered on both main viewpoints. The two main viewpoints are rather simple: one view hold that a Christian can and should join the military, while the other adopts a more pacifistic approach to the issue of Christian military service. The pro-military view uses many different passages from the Old Testament to state that God is seemingly okay with some war, while also using passages from Romans to state submission to a…
