The Oracles of God, Vol. 1

Excerpt from The Oracles of God, Vol. 1: A Popular Introduction to the Old Testament Scriptures for the Use of Bible Students; Old Testament It is, as it has always been, a body of tradition, - manners and customs, habits of thought, and modes of conduct - handed down from father to son, from generation to generation for thousands of years. At a definite date, some nineteen hundred years ago, there came into this stream of traditional culture a new current from another source, originating with another race, developed to full maturity along other lines and under different conditions; and this current has blended with the original stream of our civilization and produced our modern world. The channel by which this current came to us is the Bible. The Bible is the record of those revelations which at sundry times and divers manners God gave to the descendants of Abraham - the Hebrew race. In the development of the human race, God assigned to different nations special tasks by which they achieved renown and made their contributions to the general welfare. Greece, for example, was "the mother of Arts and Eloquence." Rome, the world's instructor in politics and jurisprudence; and Israel was the great priest nation, "to whom were committed the oracles of God." "Salvation is of the Jews," and the story of that salvation is in their sacred scriptures which we call the Bible. The culture symbolized by the Muses who dwelt by "Mt. Parnassus and the sparkling Helicon" is a great inheritance, which was formed by our fathers and handed down to us, but greater yet is that which comes to us from old Mt. Sinai and from Calvary, by the page of sacred scripture and the fervent words of prophets and apostles who wrote "that we might believe that Jesus was the Christ of God, and that believing we might have life through his name." Second: the Bible is of peculiar authorship. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
