Overview of the Old Testament - Part 1. The lesson on January 8, 2006 begins a series which will be reviewing the Old Testament. 2 Timothy 3:16, will be used as the basis for the importance of all scripture and as Derek stresses, “All scripture is for our learning and it’s profitable to deal with the WORD OF GOD on a daily basis.” We learn, that each of us is going to be used and from a spiritual perspective, the options are to be used by either Satan or by God. When encouraged to be used of God, you are guaranteed to fulfill God’s purpose for your life, if you learn God’s principles and...

Genesis covers a lot of history with scripture that covers the faith of Abraham and the foretelling of the promises the are founded in Israel’s hope.
