Old Testament Themes

There are many themes which run through the Bible, too many to mention here but here are a few:-

  • Journeying (Historical books),
  • Creation of the world and Law (Pentateuch),
  • Prophecy (Prophets)
  • Exile (Pentateuch and historical books)
  • Obedience (throughout the Old Testament),
  • Love and Suffering (Poetry and writings)

Many of the themes are linked to people, places and actions. Reading the Old Testament stories and books helps us understand God’s love for us.
