In this sermon we see Jonah delivered from the belly of the fish and recommissioned by God to go and preach to Nineveh. He gets a second chance at the mission. God is a God of second, third, fourth … chances! Maybe you think you have blown it and are no longer useful to God. Listen in and be refreshed by God’s amazing grace in Christ!
Jesus in the Old Testament
Read Jonah 1:1-17 and listen in as we discuss God’s mercy to Jonah, the mariners, and ourselves. Often God’s mercy does not look like what we expect. How do you interpret the storms of this life? Are you able to see them as God’s mercies in disguise? How does the gospel relate to our suffering? How does Jonah point us to Jesus? (See also Matthew 12:40.)
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).
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 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.
