The Dark Passages of the Old Testament


Really helps with explaining those topics. Combining that with Dr Pitre’s explanation on his Old Testament and Pentateuch Bible studies combined give an excellent approach to those topics

Dark Passages of OT

Was OK but not as good as most of Dr. Bergsma's talks

The Dark Passages from the Old Testament

I just finished a bible study on the Old Testament and this cd was a wonderful supplement to this course.

The Dark Passages of the Old Testament

Without a doubt, the best explanation of the difficult passages of death and destruction in the Old Testament. Dr. Bergsma helped me understand God’s providence, love and mercy in seemingly senseless death. This is particularly true in young and innocent lives that make us cry “Why.”

    Why is there so much killing in the Old Testament? Why does Moses pronounce such harsh laws? How can a good God send a flood on the earth and command the Israelites to wipe out the inhabitants of Canaan?

    These are some of the hardest questions people ask about the Bible, but they aren’t new. The ancient rabbis and Church Fathers wrestled with them millennia ago. In this powerful talk, Dr. Bergsma marshals all the resources of Christian theology and contemporary scholarship to address:

    • Why do some biblical heroes seem to “get away with” some atrocious actions?
    • Why are certain biblical stories so unedifying?
    • Why do some laws of Moses permit unjust actions, and have harsh penalties?
    • Why did God command Israel to put the Canaanites to death?

    Dr. Bergsma is convinced that only by grappling with the hard questions face-to-face do we come to a deeper understanding of the nature of God and of the reality he created.

I have just finished a quarter of the study and I am enriched by its learning. I look forward to the entire study .

The Genesis of Jesus: Matthew 1-2

The Dark Passages of the Old Testament


Great information to learn more about the faith.

Personally had a little bit of trouble

I never got it downloaded but it was most likely my fault. I wanted to save it on my phone but didn’t figure it out until I had tried too many times. I’m sure it would have been a great talk to listen to.

I will email you a new download link. Let me know if I can help in any way. Michael
