Journey through Israel’s history as God’s people face his inevitable judgment, are forced into exile from the promised land, cry out for his deliverance, and long for a time of peace and restoration. Imagine what it was like to be uprooted from the land God had given his people, or how it felt to be a prophet called to preach judgment to people who shunned God’s messengers. Marvel at the unparalleled beauty of the psalms, the deep insights of wisdom literature and the strange inventiveness of apocalyptic writing. While Israel despairs at its situation, see God set forth his promises, marry justice and mercy, and continue fulfilling his plan for the time when all people will call on his name. This foundational unit helps us to appreciate the richness and relevance of the Old Testament.
