We had a great evening at Going Deeper doing an Old Testament survey. Our Bibles are not ordered chronologically, so we worked on a timeline of Old Testament history and then placed the books chronologically, with a surprising amount of laughter!
The yellow books are the Pentateuch/Torah/Law – the first five books of the Bible
The pink books are history books
The green books are prophetic books
The orange books are the wisdom books
I based the material on three excellent PDF resources and John Drane’s amazing and now classic “Introducing the Old Testament“. The PDF resources are available here… Old Testament Timeline and a children’s timeline
Hope this helps you to grasp how wonderful the Old Testament is and helps it make more sense!
Next month we will be digging into the book of Genesis, hope you can join us on Sun 18th Nov 6:30pm in the church offices.
