Who's who in the Old Testament by Donald Sommerville( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Old Testament, which deals with the period before the coming of the Christian Messiah, the beliefs of the Christian and Jewish faiths are united. This section of the Bible is made up of the sacred books of the old Israelites, which teach the canonical law (the Torah), tell of the prophets, and include sacred writings. Yet as well as being a powerful instrument of religious instruction common to both the Christian and the Jewish religions, the Old Testament is also a collection of highly exciting personal stories, telling of love and passion, hatred and revenge, violence and tenderness. While every child is familiar with the story of Adam and Eve told in the book of Genesis, there are many fascinating characters in the Old Testament whose stories are less generally known: Jesse the Bethlehemite, for example the father of David. Starting with Aaron, the first high priest, Who's Who in the Old Testament is packed full of details of the colorful lives of these ancient biblical individuals. Among the many included are alluring women such as Bathsheba, tragic figures such as Cain and Abel, stern prophets such as Samuel, law-givers such as Moses, and doomed lovers such as Samson and Delilah. Nor are the lesser characters neglected: Hagar and Lot, Zerubbabel and Chedorlaomer - all tell their tales within the pages of this book. Who's Who in the Old Testament is an enthralling guide to the many charismatic characters who populate the books of the Old Testament. A comprehensive work of reference, the entries are arranged alphabetically for easy access
