First Moses wrote of key events from the Creation of the world (about 4000 BC) to his time. These were passed down from Adam through Noah, Shem, Abraham and Joseph. Abraham's descendents through Isaac and Jacob encounted God at Mount Horeb and entered a covenant to keep God's Law.

The later writers follow the history of these people (the Israelites or Jews) as they failed to keep God's covenant while God disciplined them, turning them back to himself.

Throughout the Old Testament, there are promises of a Messiah who would come and deliver the Jews from all their troubles because 'Abraham believed God'. This history authenticates the claims of the New Testament where Jesus established a New Covenant based on grace rather than law. The law shows where we go wrong but cannot justify us before God because we fail to keep it. That is why we need a Saviour.
