Old Testament


The Old Testament is the first part of the bible, the bible in turn is made up of two great compilations, the old one, which we will talk about today and the New testament, which includes a series of letters and testimonies after the death of Jesus of Nazareth. The Old Testament are books and letters that essentially collect the main narratives of the beginning of time according to the Jews and the events that shook the Hebrew people in Egypt.

The Old Testament is composed of the following books in that same order:

Genesis: This first book explains in detail the creation of the world, animals, fruits and man, after the detachment of a rib to Adam, the emergence of the woman he called Eve. Then the sins committed by both of them by biting the forbidden apple and expelling him from Eden. The story of the flood that swept away the sins of the world and all that Noah did (the construction of the ark) to repopulate the earth is also told. The story of the Tower of Babel is also described in Genesis, in which man, in his desire to surpass God, builds a huge building that reaches the sky and as punishment he sends the different dialects and skin colors.

Exodus: The story of Moses and his escape from Egypt with the Hebrews, here the well-known Opening of the waters is recounted. After this happens the delivery of the Torah or Laws of Judaism to Moses on Mount Sinai.

Leviticus: A book that is nothing more than a compendium of laws and organizational structures for the appointment of priests in the church. All the laws to define the purity and holiness of the representatives of the Levite groups.

Numbers: Commandments created in Sinai to be used there, the desert of Qades-Barnea and the plains of Moab.

Deuteronomy: The death of Moses and his last speech.

The new testament is much longer than this, there are also many more stories included in the historical books, wisdom books and the prophetic books.
