Series: The Long and Winding Road - The Old Testament Leads to Jesus


Almost two thousand years ago, in the Mediterranean world around modern Egypt, a sermon was written. The sermon has made it into the Christian Bible in a “book” called “Hebrews.” The sermon starts with a provocative statement.
Over and over, in different ways, long ago, God spoke to the fathers through the prophets. But in these latter days, he has spoken to us through his Son (Heb. 1:1).
One God, one message, but different methods. Seeing that God’s message to humanity in the “latter days” of the writer was given in Jesus, allows us to go back into the days “long ago” to find that same message. That is the point of this series. Mark walks through many examples of God speaking the message found in Jesus through prophets that walked the earth in the millennia before Jesus. The journey will feature a myriad of ways God spoke his message. Sometimes, the wording was direct. Often it was in images and types. In the many different ways, we have the blessing of hindsight, illuminating the message by knowing its ultimate form in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
