Abstract or Introduction
This paper discusses a biblical theology of knowledge of God in the Old Testament based on two representative passages, selected because of their meanings (Judg. 2: 7, 10 and 1 Sam. 2:12).
No texts are added from the Pentateuch, because some will be cited for reference. The same happens with other texts in the prophets, since most are parallel or serve to complement the ideas developed. As will be seen, the theme is developed mainly in historical, poetic and wisdom genre on literature, in both the pre-exilic and exilic period. As we mean the same God in the Old and New Testaments, contemporary Christians can be equipped with knowledge of God through reading the Old Testament. We will try to analyse what it really means to know God and advise how a Christian can benefit from that knowledge found in the Old Testament.
