Three Texts to Understand Mission in Old Testament

There are three basic texts that make it clear that God did do just that: Genesis 12,1-3; Exodus 19,5-6 and Psalm 67. These three texts are so basic to our understanding of the missionary mandate that God had designed for the whole nation of Israel that it is impossible to view the Old Testament fairly without treating these texts in their missionary context. Israel had always, in the plan and purpose of God’s grace to the nations. Israel was meant to be a communicating nation for Yahweh.

One thought on “Three Texts to Understand Mission in Old Testament

  1. Father,

    Why do you think God chose Israel? They were called a “stubborn people” so often in the Bible. I have wondered often, if it was for this very reason, as to be such an example to us all, that when we want our own way, what a treacherous path that can be? Would appreciate your thoughts. God Bless, SR
