Old Testament Survey Class
Matthew’s Gospel begins with a genealogy of Jesus going back to Abraham. Mark’s Gospel begins with a quotation from Malachi 3 and Isaiah 40. When Luke introduces Jesus’s earthly ministry, he does so by a genealogy of Jesus- but this time going all the way back to Adam! John’s Gospel begins with the same words as the beginning of the Bible, “In the beginning.” The Gospel authors ground their presentation of Jesus as the fulfillment of a grand, winding, complicated story- the story of God and humanity in the Old Testament. In this Survey class, we will seek to understand this story, how it leads to and is fulfilled in Jesus, and the implications it has for us today. Come join us for six weeks and hear about the amazing way God rescues his people and redeems the world through the faithfulness of Israel’s Messiah, Jesus the King!
