The Universal Motif of Mission in OT

bible mapThe God who in the Old Testament identifies Himself as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and who discloses to Moses His personal name, “I AM WHO I AM,” (Ex 3,14) is the God of the whole world. The experience of a few patriarchs and later the one nation of Israel with this God expand to include the horizon of the entire world.[1] Here we will cite a few of the Old Testament passages to illustrate this universal motif.
