Sundays beginning September 7th at 5:30 p.m.
Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament 
The Promised One: Seeing Jesus in Genesis
(A 10-week Bible Study)

“And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, [Jesus] interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.” (Luke 24:27)

After the resurrection, when Jesus used Scripture to explain who he was and why he came, where did he start? In the Old Testament. And this is where The Promised One begins to look for Christ, finding him in the people, promises, and patterns of the Old Testament scriptures.
With contagious passion and theological soundness, Bible teacher Nancy Guthrie shows how the book of Genesis points us to the person of Christ. Throughout ten weeks of guided personal study, relevant teaching, and thoughtful discussion questions, The Promised One will help you:

  • make new discoveries of Jesus as seen in the shadows of the Old Testament;
  • apply the gospel found in Genesis to issues such as shame, fear, and the desire for security and significance;
  • develop your longing for what is ahead when the world is once again made new.

Gain a fresh perspective on the book of Genesis, a broader understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of Scripture, and much more, when you join with Nancy on this incredible journey to see Jesus in the Old Testament!

Please see Angela Bouknecht or JoAnn Snow for a study book.
