If you find the Old Testament intimidating, obscure, troubling…all of the above…then don’t worry, you’re not alone. Many people do. And it’s no great surprise – the first part of our bibles is made up of 39 books, of differing styles and genres, with large sections seeming remote from present-day concerns.
So we’re starting a new teaching series this week, surveying the main contours of this significant chunk of God’s word.
We’ll track several key themes to help us navigate the history of God and His people. These include Story, History, Religion, Prophecy, Wisdom and the Voice of God. This isn’t just a series about increasing our knowledge. Yes, we hope to gain a better understanding of the OT, but more significantly, we want to encounter the God of salvation history and see afresh His unfolding purposes as they build towards Jesus.
