    Torah Class    Old Testament Bible Study for a New Testament Understanding Torah is the Hebrew word for the first 5 books of the Bible and it is the foundation of the Old Testament just as the Old Testament is the foundation of the New. The Old Testament (Tanach) is the Holy Scripture that Jesus (Yeshua, in Hebrew) taught from, and His Disciples referred to, since there was no New Testament until well after the time of the Apostles that succeeded Him. The Old and New Testaments are inseparable and only when used together do we have a complete, unified, divinely-inspired Bible. Torah Class cross-references the Torah and Old Testament passages with New Testament passages to reveal their seamless continuity.

Authorship of Ecclesiastes  is crucial to understanding the preachers’ worldview. Is it the work of Solomon, or perhaps a pseudonymous third century scribal creation? The following article will endeavour to demonstrate that king Uzziah, who was contemporary with the prophetic ministries of Isaiah, Hosea and Amos, wrote Ecclesiastes.
