The Old Testament for Kids


Daniel in the lion's den.

   THE CENTRAL THEMES of the Old Testament are the uniqueness and glory of God; the Law; God's influence on world history and nature; corporate and individual sin and the remedy; and the proper way to worship God.

   The Old Testament also tells that the Jews were God's chosen people, which is the main reason for their special protection - and their special punishment when they did wrong.

   Throughout the Old Testament the prophecy of Jesus, the coming Messiah, is first and foremost in God's plan.
