The series coincides with a chronological Bible-in-a-year program (included). The chronological plan is based upon historical research of when the events in the Bible took place, upon popular belief. This plan was chosen for the understanding of application of God's Word as it was given, and the mirroring of how it can be applied for the reader today.
This volume will explores II Samuel, I Kings, I Chronicles, II Chronicles, Psalms, and Song of Solomon.
The Book of PSALMS
The book of Psalms is a poetic book which meaning, “Book of Praises,” (Hebrew); or, “pious songs,” (Greek). It is not only a poetic book of praises, but a book of instruction (didactic), prophecy of Messiah (Messianic), plea for help against enemies (imprecatory), and repentance and cleansing (penitential).
Hebrew poeticism is written in parallel of rhythmic thoughts, as oppose to parallel of rhythmic words. From this, the Hebrew poetic form is paralleled in one of three ways: either synonymously (parallel of identical thoughts), or antithetically (parallel of contrasted thoughts), or synthetically (parallel of thought enhancing another).
These poetic forms meet in a book of the walk of God's people, whether in praise, plea, delight, despair, vengeance, humility, and any other state of being you might find yourself in this Christian walk. The book, therefore, contains Hebrew poeticism of any place we may find ourselves in our walk with God.
The book of Psalms is composed by at least six authors: Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph (or the families of him), the sons of Korah, and Ethan.
