Abstract
In most churches the Old Testament is a neglected, forgotten, irrelevant book. Its authority has been lost because modern Christians have not been taught "what" the Old Testament is. It is not a book of science, history, or anthropology. Because some think that it is this type of book, modern readers consider the Old Testament to be in conflict with their culture, experience and science. The project introduces the cultural milieu of Israel, the mythological backgrounds of the Old Testament, the literary genre, the history of interpretation, and Protestant authority bases. It develops a hermeneutic, that can be used in the local church, which says, "The WORD is not the words, the WORD is in the words".
