The Greatest Story Ever Told Session #15: Sirach

(Listen to this session here).

This session features the last remaining book to cover in the Old Testament.  While it is not the last in chronological order in the Bible (this goes to either 2 Maccabees or Malachi, based on where the Deuterocanonical books are placed) it is fitting to conclude our study of the OT.  This work represents a high point of synthesis of salvation history while applying the Jewish faith to a particular time and place as Judaism faced Hellenism (Greek culture).  This masterpiece is unique in many of its practical teachings and comes highly recommended as my favorite book in the Old Testament!
