Hosanna in the highest!


« on: August 03, 2011, 11:18:04 PM »

Hi,

I am currently in the process of reading the whole canon of the Holy Scriptures and I was wondering if someone could help me find some Orthodox resources on the Old Testament in order to avoid "individual interpretation".

Thanks.
