In this series for Advent, we will explore the first chapter of the Gospel of John. What did it mean for God to take on human flesh and walk among us? As we grow in understanding, our hearts will become more prepared for the Christmas holiday and for an encounter, once again, with the living God.
This three-week series explores highlights from the book of Ecclesiastes. By understanding the context and theology of the book’s main character (Qoheleth), we can understand the limitations of life. In acknowledging the author’s honest conclusions and the contemporary parallels, we will understand that God gives ultimate meaning in life and Christians can enjoy this life that God has given them.
The Old Testament points us to Jesus Christ. The Psalms are especially full of passages that point the reader to Jesus and show up time and time again in the New Testament. These prophetic words of the Psalms speak to many aspects of Jesus’s life, including his death and final exaltation.
