Continuing an Advent series on an overview of the Bible’s big story. Using The Bible Overview. Today – we look a little more closely at the Old Testament (most of it).
The Bible is the story of God’s Kingdom, and the Old Testament lays the foundation. It introduces the God of the kingdom, and prepares the way for the coming of Jesus. It teaches us about God’s character, God’s purposes and God’s works.
The Old Testament is not God’s ‘Plan A’ that failed. Rather, it sets the foundation for the ultimate expression of God’s kingdom that comes about through Jesus. The history of God’s relationship with his people in the Old Testament helps us understand who Jesus Christ is and what he did.
