“Canaan has been plundered into every sort of woe: Ashkelon is overcome; Gezer has been captured; Yano’am is made non-existent. Israel is laid waste and his seed is not.”
Misconceptions about the Old Testament: The OT is less valuable than the NT. The OT reveals a God of wrath, but the NT reveals a God of love. The OT teaches salvation by good works/keeping the law.
