These two children's Bible stories presented by Carl Manthey-Zorn provide an excellent model for teaching the Old Testament to little children. Zorn retells the stories in a simple and suspenseful manner and concludes with a brief prayer and a hymn verse.

The Highest Mystery of the Most Holy Trinity in the Old Testament

by David Hollaz
translated by Nathaniel Biebert

Some reputable theologians today regard the Trinity as an article of faith found only in the New Testament, or even as a teaching that first appeared after the Bible was written. David Hollaz demonstrates that even the Old Testament clearly testifies to the Trinity of divine persons. He proves this from the creation of the world, the leading of the Israelites out of Egypt, the promised sending and anointing of the Messiah, the solemn priestly blessing, and the trisagion of the angels.

Commentary on Romans 11:33-36

by Georg Stöckhardt
translated by Nathaniel Biebert

Stöckhardt expertly guides the reader through Paul's Greek in Romans 11:33-36. After Paul's discussion of God's turning to the Gentiles and the Jews' rejection of Christ, the age-old question naturally arises: Why some and not others? Walking through Paul's answer to that question, Stöckhardt encourages us to let the mysteries of God remain as such.
