1.The Age Of Patriarchs
Gen. 12-- Ex. 20
This Age covers the period from Abraham to Moses.
Patriarchs were to be the rulers or the heads of their
families or tribes.
2. The Age of Law
Ex.20 to the Book of Acts
From Moses through the ascension of Christ. The
Jews, who had received their independence from
Egypt on the night of the Passover (Ex. 12), were
all "redeemed"-- they were believers. God had led
them out of slavery, delivered them from the pursuing
enemy, provided for them in every possible way. As a
free people, they had to have laws of establishment in
order to protect and maintain their freedom. God
provided this protection in the form of the Mosaic Law,
which included the Moral Code or The Ten Commandments,
the Spiritual Code and the Social Code.
Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will
worry about itself.
