The Time Between the Testaments, and what to do when God seems silent
About this LessonIn the previous lesson on our series, How We Got Our Bibles, we looked at the Apocrypha, the series of books written between the Old and New Testaments, and the Septuagint, the Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible done at that time.
As interesting as the writing of these two collections are (and they are fascinating—so be sure to check out the lesson on them) much more was going on at this time in between the Testaments and if we aren’t aware of it, it can be a rather jarring when we finish reading the Old Testament and jump into an entirely different world in the New Testament where Judea is now controlled by Rome politically and has the new religious groups—the Sadducees and the Pharisees.
How all these changes happened and who these new religious leaders will be covered in this lesson.
In addition, this time is often referred to as “The Silent Years” and we’ll look at why that description isn’t entirely accurate along with advice for what we need to do when it seems that God is silent in our lives.
This is the third lesson in our series on How We Got Our Bibles and the next lesson is on How We Got the New Testament.
This lesson is part of a series on How We Got Our Bibles. It is not only a fascinating study, filled with images, archeological discoveries, and ancient stories, but included are extensive charts, maps, and notes that will give you confidence in your Bibles—that you can trust them to contain the Words of God essential for our eternal salvation and instruction on how to live lives that are pleasing to God today.
