The goal of this volume is to present the worldview characteristic of different periods of Western thought. Chapter 2 explores the life and worldview of the Hebrew people of the Old Testament. The main aspect of this worldview is the belief that God revealed himself to his elect people. Such revelation included the names of God, God as creator, creation, man as creation of God, the reality of sin, the prophets as God’s servants, and Israel’s place in redemptive history.
