Opening Up Isaiah - OUB

Opening Up Isaiah - OUB

by Andrew Thomson

The book of Isaiah is a tale of two cities: the Jerusalem Isaiah knew, and the Jerusalem that he saw. We are introduced to both in the opening five chapters.

Most people don’t know the book of Obadiah even exists, let alone what it contains. In fact, you would be hard pushed to find a Christian who could tell you anything about it.

by Andrew Thomson

The book of 2 Chronicles carries on where 1 Chronicles left off, charting the history of Judah through the reigns of its successive kings. There is life after David!

Opening Up Deuteronomy - OUB

Opening Up Deuteronomy - OUB

by Andrew Thomson

In some ways you could argue that the book of Deuteronomy is not a book for the 21st century. You would have to change the title for a start. ‘Second giving of the law’ isn’t likely to fill too many people with eagerness and excitement. After all, laws aren’t very popular, and, as we see with television, neither are repeats. So ge… Read more…
