The Wars of the Old Testament

Date recorded: 6 Nov 2019 | Speaker: Olof Edsinger | Event: ELF Bible Teachers and Preachers Network
Topic: Bible


The theme of war and violence in the Old Testament is a great trouble to many modern readers. The most provocative texts are those that talk about the extinction of entire populations – men, women, and children – seemingly sanctioned by the Lord Himself. How should these texts be understood? What has been uncovered in the last decade of research in the matter? Can it be that these texts have a message for us today​? This webinar explores these important issues.
