As Christians, the details of our covenant with God are found in the pages of the New Testament. The primary purpose of the Old Testament was to bring mankind to Christ and once it accomplished that purpose, it was no longer binding (Galatians 3:24-25). Nevertheless there is value in learning all we can about the Old Testament. “For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope” (Romans 15:4). “They were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come” (1 Corinthians 10:11). It takes all of the Scriptures (both Old and New Testaments) to equip a man for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
This series of lessons is designed to survey both Old and New
Testaments. The class book is
Through the Bible: A Systematic Study of the Old and New Testament Scriptures
by David Roper (available from Gospel Light Publishers, P. O. Box 38, Delight, Ark., 71940). http://stores.gospellightbooks.com/through-the-bib...
Each chapter in the class book has a survey of a Bible book plus an outline of a lesson on a selected passage from that book. On each Bible book Bro. Roper presents one lesson surveying the book and then a second lesson based on the outline.
You are invited to join the class Wednesdays at 5pm at Eastside church of Christ as they travel through the Bible.
