Course: Fear of God in the Hebrew Bible by Ann P. Levin, J.D.
Course: Fear of God in the Hebrew Bible
This first course in the series Man’s Relationship with God in the Hebrew Bible, explores fear of God in the Hebrew Bible and what it means to be a God fearing person. Today’s Woke culture has contempt for this idea and seeks to paint the God of the Hebrew Bible as a cruel tyrant who rules by fear. This course will quickly dispel this misconception. We will do so by exploring 3 episodes in the Old Testament which mention fear of God. Our first lesson is called Abraham and Abimelech. The second lesson is on the binding of Isaac, and our third lesson concerns the Hebrew midwives who saved the male babies of the Hebrew slaves from infanticide. By the end of this course, you will have a clear understanding that the Old Testament fear of God is a very positive tool for building a more merciful society.
