The Story – Old Testament: The Passover
Beginning this week through the end of 2015, we’ll be walking our way through the remainder of the Old Testament. In an effort to get an overview of how the Bible works, it is helpful to look at the bigger pieces of Scripture (Creation, Fall, Flood, Nations, Abraham, etc.). As we started this year looking at the larger portions of the book of Genesis, we now turn our sites to running through the remainder of the Old Testament leading up to the birth of Jesus at Christmas. This week, Lead Pastor, John Reeves walked us through the first Passover. At the first Passover, God prescribed how a sacrifice was required to save the Israelites from the Destroyer. Today, as we reflect on Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice, we see how the sacrifice of the lambs at Passover was a foreshadowing of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.
If you would like to begin a conversation about following Jesus or would like to talk more about how your story and the Gospel connect, we would love to hear from you.
