About the Scribe

My name is Sarah C. Smith.  I am an Orthodox Christian, a wife, a mother, and an Old Testament fanatic. I finished my Masters of Divinity at Asbury Theological Seminary in 2017 where I specialized in the Ancient Near East (which is a fancy way of saying “the world of and around the Old Testament). My passions include the Hebrew language, Ancient Scribal Traditions, Biblical Archaeology, Jewish Law.

It is my hope that the entries in this blog will not only be informative, and creative, but will help you prayerfully participate in the spiritual walk as a believer in Jesus Christ. Our world tends to look at the Old Testament in a negative light – but without the roots of the Old Testament, the New Testament message would be empty. Here is a place where the Old Testament can be further unpacked.
