The Son of David: Seeing Jesus in the Historical Books

When Jesus began his ministry, he began with the words, “The
time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand.” The best
way to understand the kingdom and the king is to begin in the historical books of the Old Testament, which create for us a context in which we can better understand the kingdom of God as it once was, as it is now, and as it will be one day. We will be using Nancy Guthrie’s book to trace the history of the people of God from the time they entered the Promised Land through a series of failed kings, exile, and finally their return to await the true king, highlighting how the historical books-Joshua through Esther-point to the person and work of Jesus as the true Son of David. Join us for an incredible journey to see Jesus in the Old Testament and gain a fresh perspective on Israel’s history and God’s kingdom and a broader understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of Scripture.

The Old Testament books of Nehemiah and Ruth

Nehemiah

“In the book of Nehemiah we see how God inspires and empowers Nehemiah to lead his people in rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem. Despite the people’s weaknesses and sin, God remains faithful and keeps his promises. As we study this book, we’ll see that Nehemiah serves as a model for leaders still today. His intellect, courage, empathy, and ability to challenge and inspire others, along with his dependence on God and his steady resolve in the face of opposition, provide examples for everyone. In addition, throughout this story we’ll see how the God of the Bible controls history and uses people like Nehemiah to carry out his purposes.”

Ruth

“The book of Ruth shows what can happen when people take God at his word. Despite overwhelming obstacles and some real heartache, Ruth and Naomi came through with flying colors because of God’s help. This study will help you see that the hardest times in your life may just be when God does his greatest work in your life.”
