Do we find any reference to worldwide mission in the Old Testament? Kaiser argues that there is a mission mandate and emphasis in the Old Testament that should not be overlooked. Specific attention is given to the covenant with Abraham (Genesis 12), Israel as priestly kingdom (Exodus 19), the house of David (2 Samuel 7:19), the message of the Psalms (notably Psalm 67), the Servant Songs in Isaiah, and the message of the book of Jonah.
