This seven-week Bible study, with an emphasis on biblical theology, traces the promise from Genesis 3:15 through seven Old Testament stories. Each chapterNoah and the ark, Abraham and Isaac, Moses with the manna and water from the rock, the serpent on the pole, Rahab and the spies, David and Goliath, and David and Mephiboshethgives us a glimpse, a foreshadowing, of the greater salvation Jesus wins. In each encounter, we'll see how God faithfully fulfilled his promise as he prepared us for the ultimate offspring who brought our eternal salvation.
Each story will be accompanied by a symbol that represents an aspect of our salvation. These symbols are intended to be visual reminders of spiritual truths. David once wrote: "Restore to me the joy of your salvation" (Ps. 51:12). Our hope is that you will remember the joy of your salvationand praise the One who accomplished itas you consider the battle he won on your behalf.
