According to the Chronological Chart Of Bible Books, Ruth is the ninth book to appear on the timeline. We believe it was written by Samuel, but the exact time is unknown. It is a divinely inspired book, meaning God breathed out His words through Samuel. The words of this book, therefore, are the words of God. They are able to make us wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. They are profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that we might be matured in the faith, throughly furnished unto all good works. (2 Tim 3:15-17)

The name “Ruth” is derived from one of the leading characters of the book. In fact, there are only two books of the Old Testament which are called by the name of a woman—Ruth and Esther. And, there is an interesting contrast between them. For instance, Ruth was a Gentile woman who was…

According to the Chronological Chart Of Bible Books, Judges is the eighth book which appears on the timeline. We believe portions of it was written by a number of unknown authors, but that it was completed and compiled by Samuel, sometime after Saul had been appointed king of Israel, around the year 1095 BC. Nevertheless, this is a divinely inspired book, meaning God breathed out His words through those who wrote the book. The words of this book, therefore, are the words of God. They are able to make us wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. They are profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that we might be matured in the faith, throughly furnished unto all good works. (2 Tim 3:15-17)

The book receives its name from a period in Israel’s history which was marked by various men and women appointed by God to serve as “Judges” of the people at different stages in the nation’s development. Allow me to give a historic backdrop to the book.

The time of the Judges extends from the death of Joshua to the…

According to the Chronological Chart Of Bible Books, Joshua is the seventh book which appears on the timeline.

The words of this book, therefore, are the words of God. They are able to make us wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

The name ‘Joshua’ identifies the leading figure of the book—after the death of Moses, he became the new leader of the nation of Israel. However, the content of the book is much larger than that of a single person. It chronicles the children of Israel conquering the land of Canaan, and, its…

According to the Chronological Chart Of Bible Books, Deuteronomy is the sixth book which appears on the timeline. We believe it was written by Moses, just prior to his death in the year 1451 BC. It is a divinely inspired book, meaning God breathed out His words through Moses. The words of this book, therefore, are the words of God. They are able to make the Lord’s people wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. They are profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the Lord’s people might be mature in the faith, throughly furnished unto all good works. (2 Tim 3:15-17)

The Greek translators called this book “Deuteronomy”, meaning the “second law”. In essence, the book is a restatement and explanation of the Mosaic Law given to the new generation which would enter the land of Canaan.

According to the Chronological Chart Of Bible Books, Numbers is the fifth book which appears on the timeline. We believe it was written by Moses, sometime around the year 1451 BC, just prior to his death. It is a divinely inspired book, meaning God breathed out His words through Moses. The words of this book, therefore, are the words of God. They are able to make the Lord’s people wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. They are profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the Lord’s people might be mature in the faith, throughly furnished unto all good works. (2 Tim 3:15-17)

The name ‘Numbers’ is derived from the Latin word “numeri”, which is the translation of the Greek word “arithmoi”, from which we get the word ‘arithmetic’. The name was given to the book by the seventy Alexandrian Jews, who in the third century B.C., translated the Old Testament into Greek. No doubt, the Greek translators were impressed by the two numberings God commanded Moses to make of the children of Israel, and that is why they called the book, “Numbers”. However, the Hebrew name for this book is…

The name ‘Leviticus’ is derived from the tribe of Levi, and refers to those things pertaining to the Levitical priesthood. Levi was one of the twelve sons of Jacob, and his descendants became one of the twelve tribes of Israel, and it was that tribe—the Tribe of Levi—God set apart to serve as priests among the people. And so, the book of Leviticus picks up where the book of Exodus leaves off. It is all about the ceremonial law, with special reference to the
