In the Holy Scriptures, each book, letter, story, and law was inspired by God and written down by men. There are 66 books in the Old and New Testament Bible written by 40 different people over a period of 1,500 years. Its authors were kings, royal family members, shepherds, Hebrew priests, prophets, scribes, a tax collector, a physician, farmers, political leaders, lawmakers, and fishermen. This short book is just a sampling of what each book is about in an attempt to provide overall meaning of the Old Testament. It will provide insight to a new believer, to one who may be seeking for truth, or for someone who has never found the time to read the whole Old Testament on his or her own. This is a quick overview of the Old Testament in order to help give meaning to the Bible as a whole. It is quite common for people to struggle through the Old Testament and therefore miss the relevance and vitality that the written Word has for the prophetic revelation of Jesus and the reason for His life on earth. This small book gives just a foretaste of the feast to come for those who believe. I hope you sense the essence of God’s Word as it applies to us today, and then prepare yourself for the challenging goal of reading and digesting the entire Old Testament. In the back of the little book is a diagram I hope you find useful to share.
