    The bible itself is not divinely written as it appears that some fundamentalist Christians may believe. The two tribes that did not revolt became the southern, or Judean, kingdom. This title perfectly describes His function before being born as a human being. They are a gateway only, but a gateway is a necessary and helpful point of entry. However, after his death, his son Abimelech yielded to the temptation, and an attempt was made to have him reign as king over Israel. The story concludes with an account of the succession to the throne of David's son Solomon.

    Whether they are to be regarded as early or late will depend on one's point of view. Cain took his brother Abel, a man made in the image of God, and killed him. Priests were especially active, and a new emphasis was given to the ritualistic aspect of their religion. The Settlement in Canaan The accounts of the settlement in Canaan, described in the Old Testament books of Joshua and Judges, were evidently derived from different sources since there are significant differences between them.

    When Rehoboam replied that he would not only continue these policies but would be even more severe, ten of the tribes revolted and set up a new government of their own. In these stories, the beginnings of Hebrew history are traced back to Abraham, who, according to the record, was called out of the land of Ur of the Chaldeans; to him, it was promised that his seed would become a great nation and inherit the land of Canaan. Ten of those occurrences are without the article. Only parts of this narrative were used by the author of 1 Kings, for some of the material did not serve the purpose for which that author wrote. In the Old Testament, mercy, or its English synonym, compassion, constitutes a fundamental attribute of the divine character, a reality highlighted in Exodus 32—34 and the account of the golden calf.

Jesus Christ Was the God of the Old Testament

After Alexander's death, the Jews experienced some of the most severe persecutions they had ever known, for Antiochus, the ruler of Syria, tried to obliterate completely the long-established customs and traditions of the Jewish faith.

This is why the name Satan appears in the New Testament and applied to the enemy of Eden. There is nothing about this anthology of pastoral rural love lyrics that is out of the norm for love poetry, and we should resist a common practice of arbitrarily allegorizing the details.
