So you finally have it...your first Bible. You've heard that there are like 66 books wrapped into one book. So, you think to yourself, "Should I start with the first book? Is it like a choose your own adventure sort of thing? You crack the cover and see that there's an 'old' and a 'new' part." But you think, "If I start with the new part, will it be like I missed the first season of a sitcom?" "Fine," you think. "I'll start at the beginning."
A few months later, you've made it through the Old Testament, and wow do you have questions! You've got the basics down...there is a God who made everything, including you. Your great great grandfather sinned and that caused a separation between God and man. But, God is trying really hard to make things right again...make it like it was in the beginning. But God's got a lot of work to do, so He starts making promises about a person, a Savior that is going to be born in the future.
These promises are huge, and as each one is fulfilled through Jesus, God gets one step closer to us and we get one step closer to him. And it all leads up to....da da dah...a horrible death on a cross? The hero dies? What in the world are we going to do now? Join us this spring to hear about the incredible promises God made and the amazing way Jesus made them "promises kept."
