Old Testament Overview - Israel, God's Kingdom

How did it begin?  It began at Mt. Sinai with God's covenant with Israel
(Ex 19:5-6)

Who was its ruler?  God was Israel's Ruler—a kingdom ruled by God is called a theocracy.

What was the realm of the kingdom?  The nation of Israel was to be a kingdom of priests (Ex 19:3-6) that were to be located in the Promised Land (Canaan)
(Ex 23:23-31; Deut 1:7-8).

What was the method of rule?  God would rule through human mediators. 

There would be three types of mediators:

(1) kings who ruled under God's rule;

(2) prophets who were God's spokesmen to the people;

(3) priests who were representatives of the people who were mediators between God and man.  God was Israel's legislative head—He provided Israel with its constitution (the Law; Deuteronomy 4;12-14).  God was Israel's judge (Numbers 15:32-35).  God was Israel's military leader (Ex 32;20-27; Josh 5:14-15).
