Between the Testaments - Linking Old and New by Ferrell Jenkins

Many good Bible students recognize that their knowledge of what happened
between the close of the book of Malachi in the Old Testament
and the work of John the Baptist and the birth and ministry of Jesus in the
New Testament is deficient.
Suppose an individual knows the Old Testament well. When he or
she opens the New Testament there is an awareness that one is reading
about some things never encountered in the Old Testament. Many have
heard explanations in classes and sermons about an isolated item such as
a Sabbath days journey or the difference between the Pharisees and the
Sadducees, but has no idea about the development of these groups in the
intertestamental period.
The purpose of this brief historical study is to fill in some of those
gaps in knowledge. I have taught this material in several churches and
the book, in the previous editions, has been taught by others. The updated
book is sent forth with the hope that it will enhance your knowledge
of the period under consideration and make your Bible study more
understandable and rewarding.
