Approaching the OT  God controls history and will reveal himself in time and we should listen Listening can be impacted by: 1) not being able to receive the message in the way that it  was written. 2) selective over what we want to hear  Knowing God comes by experiencing his attributes, his attributes become the framework of our  worldview.  The story of God begins with creation Th emphasis being on God’s plan As history begins the OT is concerned with political or social aspects of history on in a  secondary way. The primary interest of the history is how God has revealed himself to people in  the past. Other names for God: God who is holy Almighty Most High The one who has caused everything to be He is a God who sees, hears, and provides. The OT should be viewed as God’s attributes in  action. God’s plan spans the scope of history, prophecy, and creation. It was a plan to create a people  among whom he could dwell and with whom he could be in a relationship. His plan emerges  naturally as an initiative that expresses his character as a creative, relational, and gracious being. Stages of God’s presence: 1. Eden 2. Covenant 3. Exodus (Bush/Sinai) 4. Tabernacle/Temple 5. Incarnation (Immanuel) 6. Pentecost 7. New Creation Through the covenant God reveals what he is like and obliges himself to a particular course of  action. Old testament appears to be the history of the covenant.
