After reading, Discovering the Old Testament, Chapter 5 “Israel’s View of the World,” pages 61-74, write a 450 word paper that reconciles the punishment for sin on Adam and Eve and mankind in the flood with God’s grace. How is God’s grace demonstrated in these events? That is, while the punishments were consequences for sin, how did God show grace? How does this impact your understanding of God in the Old Testament? Your paper should include 2 citations from the textbook and 2 citations from the article “The God of Redeeming Grace: Atonement in the Old Testament“.
