It’s time for me to put up some more fantastic material from Dr. Reed Lessing of Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, MS! In this video, he talks about the Old Testament from a big picture perspective. Also, he spends some time talking about the difference between Israelites, Israelis, Hebrews, and Jews (yes, the terms are not synonymous as you might have been taught!).
(p.s. if you only watch one, make it #2)
