Iain now launches into the distinctive message of the OT beginning with Genesis - Who is God? Having covered the ANE context, he can give the OT answer to this question in a much richer light. We start to see just how new and fresh, the Genesis picture of God is, and how blessed we are to have this revelation. The view of God is so much grander and yet so much more intimate than anyone in human history had ever imagined. Enjoy and admire afresh how great God is!!
