Old Testament

The study of the Old Testament examines the beginnings of the big story of God’s plan of redemption. The creation of the universe and the rebellion of the first man and woman set the stage for God’s intervention. As God sets apart Abraham to be the father of many nations, we see how the special people of God are delivered, led, warned, and disciplined. The historic journey of the Jewish people is told in such a way that spiritual insights help us see how our own walk with God can be enriched. In addition, the Old Testament study is deeply enriched with marvelous Psalms of praise and wisdom from the Proverbs. For the student, anticipation builds as we read of the promised Messiah who will ultimately come in the Person of Jesus Christ.
