If you’re curious about when the books of the Bible were written, it’s a good idea to understand the background of each book. For example, you should know that 1 Kings, Isaiah, Nehemiah, and Jude were all written before the final editions of these books were published.
Book of Judges
The Book of Judges contains the stories of six notable people who lived long before Christ. The story of Samson and Delilah is included, as well as the tales of Abdon, Elon, and Jephthah. Among these stories, one of the most famous is that of a king who was overthrown by an army of Midianites.
Book of Isaiah
The Book of Isaiah dates from around 750-686 B.C. It contains numerous sayings and reports of the prophet and his disciples. It grew gradually, but the most definitive form is believed to date from the fifth century bc. Though it is not entirely clear who wrote the Book of Isaiah, its message is clear. It reflects the cult that existed in Jerusalem and the exalted view of Yahweh that existed in Zion tradition.
Book of Jude
The Book of Jude is an epistle written in the language of the time when the Bible was written. In it, Jude condemns some groups that were threatening the early Christian community. He describes these enemies as not being true Christians and assures the readers that these people will be judged by God. Jude also makes references to the Old Testament, including the Exodus and the rebellion of Satan. He also calls upon believers to be vigilant and to guard sound doctrine.
Book of Hebrews
The Book of Hebrews was probably written by an individual with a Hellenistic background. The author’s use of the Septuagint, a Greek translation of the Old Testament, is thought to be evidence of his Hellenistic upbringing. However, recent research has suggested that some of his quotations might be from non-traditional Hebrew texts.
Book of Hosea
The Book of Hosea dates back to the eighth century BC. It was written to the ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom of Israel during the reign of Jeroboam II (786-746 BC). The Pre-Exilic Prophet Hosea was an emotional man who swung from violent anger to deep tenderness.
Book of Micah
The Book of Micah is a prophetic book. It was written around the time of Isaiah and the prophets Amos and Hosea. Its message is similar to the message of these prophets. The Book of Micah describes God’s judgment on Israel, but it also promises mercy and a restoration of the Jewish people to their land.
Book of Josiah
Book of Josiah is a biblical story that tells about the reign of a king named Josiah, the son of David. He walked the way of his father David and never turned aside to the left or right. This made Josiah an excellent king. The book describes the way Josiah treated his people and led them to do right. It also tells of his desire to be righteous and to do what was right in the sight of God.
Book of Psalms
The Book of Psalms dates back to around the time of King David. It is believed that the majority of the psalms were composed by him. The book contains 150 prayers and songs attributed to David and other people in the Old Testament. Some scholars believe that the psalms came down through oral tradition. As a result, the texts were subject to changes with each retelling. Eventually, a final compilation was made in the year 200 A.D.
