Psalms - Sing to God... A New Song



Two Bible Studies looking at some of the big themes in the Book of Psalms       

Psalms Bible Study

Study One - Sing to God 

This is the first of two Bible Studies on Psalms, and in this one we're looking at some of the major themes that are found within the 150 found in the book, which was both hymn and prayer book of Israel in the Old Testament, written somewhere between 900-500 BC.

The Book of Psalms is the longest book in our Bibles, and unique in the sense that it is a collection of poetic prayers and hymns composed over many centuries by several authors, and with a wide variety of themes. 

Many of the Old Testament books are best understood in the light of the New Testament, which itself makes use of this resource. However, most of the Psalms are standalone and can speak into everyday Christian life, which has given them a timeless quality and provided a source of inspiration for contemporary writers of hymns and worship songs.

Study Two - A New Song 

This is the second of two Bible Studies on Psalms, and in this one we're looking at some of the major themes that are found within the 150 found in the book, which was both hymn and prayer book of Israel in the Old Testament, written somewhere between 900-500 BC.

Psalms come to us from the times of David, Moses, and from the experience of exile. What is common to so many is that their content comes packed with personal experience. David was a musician, having learned to play whilst he was a shepherd, so using song to speak into his own daily joys and struggles would have been as natural as to him as to musicians and folk singers over many centuries, who have sung about the times in which they lived.
