Jesus, You and the Essentials of Christianity - 5 Jesus in the Old Testament
Where does Life’s Compass Point? Jesus, You, and the Essentials of Christianity
Episode 5: Jesus in the Old Testament
Imagine that you get lost way out in the forest and your only hope of getting out alive is to follow direction from a magnetic compass. But instead of the compass pointing to magnetic north, the compass always points to you. How helpful would that compass be? Not at all!
Why then do so many of us live as if life’s compass points to us? Do we get to decide what life’s purpose is and how to live it? Or, is there an objective purpose to life and a right way to live it?
Join Dr. Frank Turek as he highlights God’s purposes for our lives and the essentials truths of Christianity. In this 17-part series filmed for TV, you’ll get practical answers to these and other important questions:
- What’s wrong with you and the world?
- What is the Bible all About?
- How do we interpret the Bible?
- What is God like?
- Who is Jesus?
- What is the Trinity?
- Why is the Resurrection so important?
- What is God’s solution to our brokenness?
- What is faith and why does God want it?
- How should we live then?
As Frank continues to show what the Bible is all about, he unpacks Jesus’ claim from Luke 24 that the Old Testament scriptures testify of Him. If you’ve never heard of typology before, this episode will change the way you look at the stories of the Old Testament. After Adam rebelled, God in His providence intervened to save humanity. He worked through Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, David, Jonah, Hosea (and others), who were all types of Christ— saviors in their own right. Those saviors foreshadowed the ultimate Savior, Jesus Christ.
