Read Psalm 2 and listen in as we end our series with a sermon showing that all of the Old Testament kings point us forward to the true and greater King, the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is on the throne and is reigning for His people (Ephesians 1:19-23).
Road to Emmaus
We first read Exodus 28 and then focused on a couple of items of the High Priest’s garments. We looked more closely at the shoulder pieces and the breastplate of judgment to see how the picture Christ and His intercession for His people (also see Hebrews 7:23-25). Jesus is truly our true and greater High Priest who continually intercedes for us!
In this sermon we launch our discussion from Deuteronomy 18:15-22. First we examine briefly the topic of an Old Testament prophet. What was a prophet? What is prophecy? How does all this find its fulfillment in Jesus? Listen as we bring in other texts to show that Jesus is the true and greater prophet in whom all the other prophets find their fulfillment.
In this sermon we take a quick look at the tabernacle in Exodus. Listen and see how the gate, bronze altar, laver, lampstand, table of bread, altar of incense, curtain … all point us clearly to Jesus and the salvation we have in Him. Jesus is the true and greater tabernacle.
In this sermon we look back at Israel’s exodus from Egypt to see how it points us forward to Jesus. We examine briefly the first 9 plagues, and then we focus in on the 10th, the death of all the firstborn of Egypt. Egypt received what it deserved – justice/judgment – and Israel received what it did not deserve – grace and deliverance. Israel was delivered from bondage by the death of the firstborn, and it was protected from judgement by the Passover lamb. Jesus is both the judged firstborn and sacrifice that frees His people from their bondage in sin. Jesus is the true and greater Passover Lamb, and His salvation is the true and greater Exodus. (See Exodus chapters 1-12 for the back story.)
In this sermon we look back and the first two chapters of the book of Exodus and point out a few of the ways Moses pictures Jesus. We also draw out application from Exodus 2:24-25. It is suggested that you read Exodus chapters 1 & 2 before listening if possible. Jesus is the true and greater Moses, and He is also Lord over all of our circumstances! We hope this sermon will encourage you and help you walk with joy through the trials of this life.
In this sermon we look back at Genesis chapters 37-50, the life of Joseph, and see that Joseph’s life clearly foreshadows and points us to Jesus. Joseph was his father’s beloved son, was betrayed by his brothers, was sold for silver, … These are only a few of the points of contact that we point out. Also, Joseph’s life is one of the clearest Old Testament illustrations of the truth of Romans 8:28. Evil never wins!
In this sermon we review the flow of Genesis and the life of Abraham. Then we work through God calling Abraham to sacrifice his son in Genesis 22. We end by pointing out 5 ways we see Jesus in this chapter. Listen in as we see that Jesus really is the true and greater Isaac, who really was sacrificed for His people.
