    Righteousness in the Old Testament The concept of the “righteous man lives by faith” can be read in Habakkuk 2:4 and in Romans 1:17 by Paul; which forms the key in Paul’s theological discussion in both the book of Romans and Galatians (Guthrie , 1981, p. 498). How Paul interpreted this passages would, in the view of Donald Guthrie (1981, p. 498), put forward that there is a strong influence of the Hebraic idea that the righteous man is one who God accepts; Paul however extends this to see its…

  • Rituals In The Old Testament

    Forbidden Rituals The Old Testament provided certain instructions with regards to death and burial rituals which would suggest the start of Israelite tradition.
