(p.64) 6 Provisional Conclusions from the Old Testament
Salvation for All

Gerald O'Collins, SJ

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides provisional conclusions from the Old Testament (OT). It concludes that the relationship of YHWH, God of Israel, his divine personification, and wisdom, to other people stays in a state of unresolved tension in the OT. It states that many texts from the OT are antagonistic in nature — citing the relationship between YHWH and the nations other than Israel as the best example.

Keywords:   Old Testament, YHWH, God of Israel, divine personification, wisdom, antagonistic, God—human relationship, Israel
