Book of Genesis

Genesis is the first book of the Pentateuch,the first section of the Jewish and the Christian Scriptures. Its title in English, “Genesis,” comes from the Greek of Gn 2:4, literally, “the book of the generation (genesis) of the heavens and earth.” Its title in the Jewish Scriptures is the opening Hebrew word, Bereshit, “in the beginning.” The book of Genesis emphasizes the crystallized theological views concerning the Lord and the people. The first book of the Bible, Genesis, sets the tone to the theological significance of the plan of God in the history of salvation.

Book of Deuteronomy

The title of Deuteronomy in Hebrew is Debarim, “words,” from its opening phrase. The English title comes from the Septuagint of 17:18, deuteronomion, “copy of the law”; this title is appropriate because the book replicates much of the legal content of the previous books, serving as a “second law.” It brings to a close the five books of the Torah or Pentateuch with a retrospective account of Israel’s past, the exodus, the Sinai covenant, and the wilderness wanderings, and a look into Israel’s future as they stand poised to enter the land of Canaan and begin their life as a people there.

The book of Deuteronomy which is known as the book of law provides norms to the people of Israel. It is all done in the light of the Covenant made with the people of Israel.

Book of Samuel

This book represents the personal history of Samuel, last of the Judges. It records the moral failure of the priesthood under Eli, and of the Judges in Samuel's attempt to make the office hereditary ( 1 Samuel 8:1 ). In his prophetic office Samuel was faithful, and in him begins the line of writing prophets. Henceforth the prophet, not the priest, is conspicuous in Israel. In this book the theocracy, as exercised through judges, ends (1 Samuel 8:7), and the line of kings begins with Saul.

The book of Samuel deals with the prominent themes namely, figures of the prophet and the institution of kingship. This book ends with the transferring of royal power from David to Solomon.
