The Promised One: Seeing Jesus in Genesis
“And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, [Jesus] interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.” (Luke 24:27)
After the resurrection, when Jesus used Scripture to explain who he was and why he came, where did he start? The Promised One begins in the Old Testament to look for Christ, finding him in the people, promises, and patterns of the Old Testament scriptures.
With contagious passion and theological soundness, Bible teacher Nancy Guthrie shows how the book of Genesis points us to the person of Christ. Throughout ten weeks of guided personal study, relevant teaching, and thoughtful discussion questions, The Promised One will help you:
make new discoveries of Jesus as seen in the shadows of the Old Testament;
apply the gospel found in Genesis to issues such as shame, fear, and the desire for security and significance;
develop your longing for what is ahead when the world is once again made new.
Gain a fresh perspective on the book of Genesis with a broader understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of Scripture.

The Longing In Me
Do your longings have you going around in circles? You vowed to never repeat the same mistakes, but here you are again, right where you started. What is it that keeps drawing you back? Why can’t you seem to break free? The truth is that the human heart longs for closure and understanding. It longs to change the ending of the things in our lives that have left scars.
This six-session DVD based study, author and Bible teacher Sheila Walsh explains that it is our longings that often lead us into such traps. Through the story of King David in the Bible we’ll find that our longings are rooted in a deep need for God. We will be able to heal from the past and find joy!
During the weeks of the study we’ll look at the longing to be chosen, to be protected, for control, for happiness, for God’s grace and finally for God alone. We’ll embrace the reality that we are uniquely loved and chosen by God!
