In the Beginning—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
January 12, 2020 | David Beaty
Is the Old Testament relevant for us today? If we are Christians, shouldn’t we just study and learn the New Testament: This message addresses the very first verses in the Bible and seeks to show how these Old Testament words provide the foundation for all of life.
The Bible is one book—one amazing work of literature —historical, theological, and anthropological. It is the one story of redemption. In part one, we begin in the beginning. The books of the Law and History help lay the foundation for the story. We will notice the continuous narrative of God’s people as the story advances each week. In doing so, we will begin to see the many Old Testament shadows of the One who is the substance in God’s grand plan of redemption—Jesus—the Christ, Messiah, and Savior, the One who is central to the entirety of this one story.
