Summary: The purpose for this study is to evaluate Israel's relationship with the Gentile nations to determine if Israel had a general missionary mandate to go and witness to the surrounding nations. With this specific purpose in mind, this dissertation examines other broader issues concerning God's intention for all peoples following His choice of Abraham and the nation Israel. It will identify the connection between divine election in the Old Testament and God's universal intention found in both Testaments. Also, studying missionary activity in the Old Testament era is the first step toward a proper understanding of missiology in a canonical theology. This dissertation argues that the Old Testament's relevance to New Testament missions is found in its foundational prophetic passages, not Old Testament examples of missionary endeavors.
