All the way to Maccabees

So after the first few books of the Bible, and then all the way to Maccabees which is about half way through the old testament, I’ve found the books to be very similar. The stories are, to me, mostly the same. Someone followed God’s rules, him and his sons were rewarded. His sons don’t follow the rules so well, eventually lose everything, God is mad for a while and then someone comes along who follows the rules again and God is nice.

I honestly did not mark a single page nor really get much out of all of these books. Which though I am disappointed about, I’m really happy I read them.

The new section of books beginning with Job are said to be the books of wisdom and have begun with God and Satan testing Job. I’m really looking forward to these ones.
