Making sense of the Old Testament God. The first is that God is a God of wrath in the Old Testament and a God of mercy in the New. This mistake can be. There will be so many that they will stand shoulder to shoulder, serving Yahweh unitedly ().” 15 Because of that, God is depicted in a unique activity (never again mentioned in the entire Old Testament).
He is singing over His people with joy: “‘The Lord your God is with you, the mighty warrior who saves. God does not only provide the law for his people, but he also tells the people what kind of response is appropriate.

Most of the judges in the Book of Judges were deeply flawed vessels, whom YHWH conscripted for his service and empowered by his Spirit, and who, through heroic acts of momentary reliance on God. Some Bible scholars view Joshua as an Old Testament representation, or foreshadowing, of Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah.
