Reading the Bible: How to Read The Old Testament


December 2 following the 9:30 and 11 a.m. services

What's the point of reading the Jewish Bible (aka the Old Testament)? One simple answer is – it was Jesus' Bible. He read it, so we should read it too. Furthermore, Jesus claimed that he didn't come to do away with the Jewish scriptures, but to "fulfill" them. But what does that mean? And why did the majority of Jews disagree with Jesus and his followers about this claim?
 
On December 2, we'll look at how the New Testament contains guides for reading the Old Testament and helps us understand the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus in their Jewish context.
