DID YOU KNOW: The first Judge of Israel?

  • The word “testament” (Hebrew berîth, Greek (diatheke ), means “covenant.” The term “Old Testament” refers to the covenant which God entered into with Abraham and the people of Israel, and “New Testament” to the covenant God has entered into with believers through Christ.

  • Othniel was the 1st judge of Israel (judge 3:9-10)
  • All the books of the Old Testament except Esther, Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon are quoted or referenced in the New Testament. Jesus quoted or made references from Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Psalms, Proverbs, 1 Kings, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea, Amos, Jonah, Micah, Zechariah, and Malachi.
  • The practice of dividing the Bible into chapters began with Stephen Langton, an Archbishop of Canterbury in the early 13th century. Robert Estienne , a 16th-century printer and classical scholar in Paris, was the first to print the Bible divided into standard numbered verses.
