Introductory sites

There are a couple of excellent general Old Testament sites on the web. One of these is Barry Bandstra’s introductory site Reading the Old Testament–An Introduction to the Hebrew Bible.

The other is an introduction to the Old Testament in point form prepared for his high school classes by teacher Richard Martin. It also includes model quizzes and crosswords designed to help students read texts closely. The name of the site is The Narrow Gate. Scroll down the list of contents to the Old Testament section. A short article entitled How the Bible was Written provides a good brief introduction to the background, composition and development of Bible texts.
