Summer Sermon Series: Gospel Thread
May 15, 2014
FBCER to Begin Summer Sermon Series in Old Testament on May 18.
Did you know Jesus was in the Old Testament? In Luke 24:27 it says, “And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he [Jesus] interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.” The Old Testament is not just a book of stories and history. It is pointing us to the coming of Jesus Christ, God’s perfect plan of redemption. When we view the OT only through the lens of stories, we miss out on the beauty of the Gospel being displayed in its pages. The message of grace is a theme that runs throughout the Bible and there is a gospel thread that connects us at every point to Christ.
Yet, there are also important lessons that we can learn from the men and women of the Bible. We learn from their faith and obedience, as well as their failures. Our aim in this summer series is to look at the lives of these men and women and show how their lives tell a greater story, the story of God’s glorious Gospel.
