In the early world it was hard for one to know what God might require of them. Back then they did not have the Holy Bible or even the Holy Spirit to guide them. The Holy Spirit didn’t come to mankind until after the death and resurrection of Jesus at the Day of Pentecost. Jesus told His Disciples that he would send another to guide them. He tells them in John 14:16-17, “ 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, 17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.” You could imagine how life would be like not knowing what was right and what was not. The Holy Spirit is our moral compass so to speak. Because that moral compass was not there yet, it was extremely important for God to reveal Himself to those in the Old Testament to let people know what was right and wrong and to guide them. Without that guidance from Him they would be lost to their sinful ways. God revealed Himself in many different ways in the Old Testament.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
