Derek McCammonHere is a series that covers the Old Testament. Most Christians are ignorant of the history in the Old Testament so this audio series will provide a good review.


Old Testament Study - Part 6. The lesson on March 12, 2006 continues the series on the Old Testament study and finishes the review with the first five books called the Torah. Genesis covers a lot of time and we learned that Moses was a type of Christ it that he was a deliverer. Exodus is in three sections. Chapters 1 thru 18 deals with redemption. Chapters 9 thru 24 covers sanctification while 25 thru 40 involves redemption. The law was given to Israel and demonstrates how Holy God is and shows that man is sinful.

Old Testament Study - Part 7. The lesson on March 19, 2006 continues in the review of the Old Testament books. Last week finished the first five books in the Bible called the Torah.

Old Testament Study - Part 8. This lesson on March 26, 2006 continues with the books 1 & 2 Samuel and covers Eli, Samuel, Saul, and David. Acts 13:14-23 is the scripture reading which is the Apostle Paul preaching in the Synagog during the period when he was appealing to the nation of Israel. This history lesson reminds them of all the highlights “The God of this people of Israel chose our fathers, and exalted the people when they dwelt as strangers in the land of Egypt, and with an high arm brought he them out of it.

Old Testament Study - Part 9. The promise of Christ through the throne of David. Part 9 of the Old Testament review touched on King David this week and the “Davidic Covenant”. As was said in 2 Samuel 7:8 (KJV) “Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel:” We find David an important link in the line of our Savior. In Luke 1:30-33, we saw an angel tell Mary “And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.

Old Testament Study - Part 10. There is a great need that you have. The need is to know Christ. E .W. Bullinger wrote a pamphlet called the “Christians Greatest Need” and it tells the very important aspect of knowing Him. The word of God is given to us in a complete form and we are encouraged to study to be approved unto God. The bible contains basic instructions before leaving earth.
