RE: The Old Testament thread

One comment is on Abraham and how willing he is to "lie" about his wife being his sister and pass her on to different rulers just to save his own skin. Why would god reward this?

I'd recommend reading the KJV Old Testament along with Alexander Scourby's narration. You'll get through the OT very quickly this way.





Abraham was not rewarded for his lie (he actually repeated this lie with another king later on in Genesis).

This is where his reward came from:

Genesis 15:6 Wrote:And he [Abram] believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.


Righteousness is a covenant term. It means 'right standing' and the person who is right standing has qualified to benefit from the covenant - it is his right. It was Abraham's faith that gave him this right standing when he believed that God would provide the sacrifice and that he wouldn't have to sacrifice Isaac.

If you learn one thing from the OT (which sets up the New Testament) is that it is a blood covenant book. Men used to know the dire obligations of the blood covenant. If you don't understand blood covenant, you'll never understand the Bible. The other word for covenant is testament. A will and testament only comes into force through someone's death.
