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.

Kings and Prophets 3: The Babylonian Crisis       Barry L. Bandstra    The Babylonian period, technically referred to by historians as the neo-Babylonian period, extended from around 630 to 539 BCE (see Table 11.1). The Babylonians of this period are also referred to as Chaldeans.

1 Kings 20:22-22:28                Roger Hahn   The closing chapters of 1 Kings and the opening chapters of 2 Kings are a confusing collection of stories about Elijah, Elisha, Ahab, Ahab's successors, the interaction of Aram (Syria) and Israel, and Jehoshaphat. The literary purpose of the section appears to be to show the circumstances leading to the fulfillment of God's commission to Elijah in 1 Kings 19:15-18.

An Overlooked Message - The Critique of Kings and Affirmation of Equality in the Primeval History Robert K Gnuse   The Primeval History in Genesis 2-11 contains symbolic polyvalent narratives with diverse levels of interpretive possibility. One meaningful level of interpretation is to see how the accounts contain a strident critique of kingship, especially the social economic abuses perpetrated by kings. Kings who receive the strident barbs of the author include not only Mesopotamian rulers, but also, by implication, the rulers of Israel and Judah, who likewise abused their powers. This exilic critique of kings is also, in turn, part of the great biblical message affirming human equality and dignity, and it speaks a powerful egalitarian word to any age.
