The Hebrew Bible increases our reverence towards God;
crystallizes, strengthens and codifies our beliefs; ensures our
awareness and knowledge of our history; and provides powerful
impetus to be ethical.
It makes us stand in awe of God, while also providing optimism and comfort through the prophecies of redemption. It inspires us to strive for holiness and informs us how to pray and to approach God's presence. See also the Related Link.
