Craig W M Friedley Sr Timothy RS 211 Introduction to the Bible 12 Nov 2000 Remnant as seen in the Old Testament Remnant - n C a small piece or amount of something that is left from a larger original piece or amount Cambridge 1202 Remnant - The portion of a community which is left in the case of a devastating calamity the portion upon which the possible future existence of the community depends Interpreters 32 Among the many themes that are seen throughout the books of the bible there is the prevalent theme of the remnant The above definitions are just a preview of what the word means During our overview of the bible this semester we see that the remnant of the people was always closely tied to the covenant that God established with his people Israel Israel was chosen to be Gods people God shows that he would always keep his covenant with the people no matter how few remained The beginnings of this remnant can be seen in Gods relationship with Abraham and his wife Abraham had a relationship with God like he had with no other He fully and completely trusted him and he believed that he could and would follow him the rest of his life We see this relationship when he asks to save the people of Sodom and Gomorrah In Gen 1825-33 Abraham is pleading with God to find a remnant in the city so that the city would not be destroyed God is unable to find the remnant for which Abraham pleads At times God did not expect a remnant to remain In Joshua 1040-43 God desired Joshua to leave no survivors to totally destroy all the people We see later in the bible where the people fail to do as God commands and then the people have trouble with the remnant that remains The people of Israel adopt the ways of the remnant that remained
