To begin with, understanding the Bible requires that we recognize that the God of the Bible (YHWH) is not what the Greeks and pagan imagined - whimsical, mysterious magnified humans who ride roughshod over people’s lives, operate in the shadows, and hide their will from mankind! The gods of Greco-Roman paganism were thought of in terms of “power” rather than principle. On the other hand, the Hebrews were dealing with the God who presented Himself as a faithful covenant maker/keeper, who reveals His will to mankind and then, being holy Himself, He holds His people accountable for their actions.
I believe that as we read the Bible and think about God through the lens of covenant the better we will understand who God is and what He is doing in the world.
