In studying the theology of the Old Testament, one of the primary tasks of the instructor is to affirm that the teaching of the Old Testament is the result of revelation. That which the Biblical writers tried to express in human language was the result of that which was revealed to them through revelation.
God entered human history and acted redemptively for the salvation of humanity. The redemptive acts of God in history were interpreted by the people who experienced the work of God in their history. The meaning of what God did and said has been recorded in writings and eventually those writings became sacred scriptures.
