The Ten Commandments states exodus 20:2 “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
then God gives the commandments.
These commandments seem like a deal.
Like since I brought you out of slavery, you have to behave a certain way.
God seems to want payment in terms of behavior and animal sacrifices.
That is kind of like working at red lobster, I get paid to pretend I care about Red Lobster. Good deal.
God is like Red Lobster?
Then comes Samson and David
They are like super heroes.
Samson kills like thousands of people by himself.
It is pretty amazing.
The heroes of the Old Testament seem really ambitious, Moses, Samson, and David are really pumped up. Everyone wants lots of male children and to have their children become kings.
It is really just a history of kings.
People keep talking to and seeing God.
Like God appears.
But there is no description of what God looks like.
God seems to love property.
The thing that is unique to me, or weird
The thing that I wonder about are the writers' intention.
Like they would be completely surprised that their writings were still around be sold 2500 years later. Were they thinking, "This will be good for the people of the village, they will like these stories."
I doubt they were thinking, "People will be reading this for 2600 years."
