Why is There so Much Killing and Bloodshed in the Old Testament?
By Mark Finley and Brad Thorp

Learn how to interpret the Old Testament passages involving violence and bloodshed. Learn how to reconcile the God, who wants to care for the refugees and people of different cultures/religions, and the God of the Old Testament who commands the Israelites to kill their neighbors of different cultures and religions.

– Taught by Pastor Mark Finley and Pastor Brad Thorp

When you turn the page from the end of the Old Testament to the beginning of the New Testament, it can seem like you have entered a different world. One belief held by some is that the God of the Old Testament is a god of wrath, whereas the God of the New Testament is a god of love. Does the Christian Bible tell a tale of two Gods?

Mark Finley and Brad Thorp, two seasoned Seventh-day Adventist pastors, teamed up to provide biblical answers to this and many other questions from the attendees of the live-training session held on March 28, 2021.
