Old Testament Topics and Doctrines


Bold for doctrines which are not finished; partially bold for those begun but much work still to be done on them:

This tells you which subjects and doctrines I have covered in which books; I am working as quickly as I can to place all of this on the Internet, so if you are looking for something which is not posted yet, please email me.

The Pentateuch

The Historical Books

The Writings

The Prophets

The Minor Prophets































Song of Solomon











I have just begun to place doctrines in here with a link to their online location, and I have also begun to list any doctrines, charts or maps found within them as sub-points, so to speak.

Doctrines which I need to place: Omniscience of God (reference. in NIV Joshua 22:22 footnote). The Trinity (covered as perhaps Yehowah in the Trinity in Deut. 5:11). See the Doctrine of the Deity of the Holy Spirit, found in Judges 16:20 for some material. Also, the Doctrine of Grace;

In Judges 4:4, I began to take note of Short Doctrines which are doctrines, generally less than ten points long and placed right in with the text, point-by-point. It appears as though I have, for a reasonably long time (maybe since Joshua), included short topics which are a part of the exegesis.

At some point, I would like to introduce the Doctrine of the Topology of Jerusalem (Psalm 68:16?);

I am thinking that I ought to look at the gospel in the Psalms and the gospel in Isaiah (as well as other books).

Doctrines and Topics to be later Covered


1.       Dispensations. God chose Israel to write and preserve His Word (Psalm 99:7). For those who do not believe in dispensations, they ignore completely the Bible that they carry around with them—the one which reads Old Testament and New Testament (Old Covenant and New Covenant). That is the very essence of dispensational thought is an old and new covenant between God and man.

2.       Prayer. I should include things, e.g., great prayers, like that of Moses for the people of Israel, or Abraham concerning the land of Sodom and Gomorrah, or Samson at the end of Judges 15, or Manoah’s wife.
