Overview of the Old Testament

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 16. There seems to be a pattern with Christians that approach reading scripture like a combination salad, that they don’t rightly divide. We’ve been asked to study to be approved unto God and that means to learn how to read scripture like a seven course meal with every course in it’s order. The reason we have been studying the Old Testament is to ensure that we learn how to rightly divide. To learn why God chose Abraham to become a nation that He would deal with exclusively throughout the Old Testament and into the New Testament as well.

Old Testament Study - Part 17. The passage in Luke 3:1-6 is a typical passage that most of Christianity today is familiar with from a traditionalist point of view. However, if you were to take the same group of Christians to the book of Ephesians and read chapter one through three and really study the differences between the truths that are there vs. what you find in the Gospels, most of the group would try to keep what is in the Gospels vs. what Paul tells us we have in Christ. This is why Christians are totally ignorant with the truths that belong to us.

Old Testament Study - Part 18. The Old Testament to a new believer in Christ can be awkward to read and can be cumbersome at first. Derek shares the story of how he felt as a young Christian boy getting inspired to grow by reading scripture... but when he got past Genesis 1:1, it became a burden. The reason we have taken time out to look at the Old Testament is to encourage you as a Christian to understand the issues in the New Testament because most of the Gospels and books written during the Acts period deal with truths from the Old Testament.

Old Testament Study - Part 19 (final of the series). It seems by the mainstream denominations, they constantly teach on the practical things in life. They tend to bring those things out of the Gospels and books of the Acts period, when what we have in The Mystery provides us truths that bring it all together. When we leave the Acts period we get into the Pauline epistles that provides a distinct delineation from the promises made to Israel and the promises made to the members of the body of Christ.
