Promises ground us. With every promise comes stability and beauty. Every kept vow gives courage and hope. In Promises Kept, passionate and gifted Bible teacher Courtney Reissig takes students through five Old Testament covenants—promises—with the goal of seeing God’s beautiful storyline.
What are the purposes of God’s covenants and how do they inform and transform the way we live? During these six weeks, we discover the meaning of God’s Covenant with Adam, Abraham, the Exodus and Passover, the Mosaic Covenant, God’s Covenant with David, and the New Covenant Promised. Participants see God’s purposes for His people, their place in His purposes, and how the entire Bible fits together. Additionally, we will see how Jesus fulfills God’s loving covenants.
Each day of homework can be completed in 20–30 minutes, with rest days included. In the process of this study, readers learn and employ an interpretive method: observe, interpret, and apply. This simple yet indispensable tool is a gift that will equip and bless all further Bible study. As we dive into God’s precious promises to the people He loves, we’ll find our hearts strengthened and encouraged to face our days with greater love and courage.
