The Old Testament explained & applied (Survol de l'Ancien Testament, Vol. 3)
From the early days of the Christian era, the Old Testament has held a vital place for Christians. The teaching of the apostles consisted of the fruits of the direct ministry of the Lord Jesus, as well as the interpretation and application of the Old Testament scriptures in relation to the Savior and His Church. The apostles based everything Jesus said and did on the basis of the Old Testament.
There are two dangers, however, to those who study divine revelation: viewing the Old Testament as an autonomous revelation on the one hand, missing the connection with Jesus Christ; get bogged down in the colossal mass of available details and get discouraged, on the other hand.
For this, the author offers a brief, schematic but faithful "overview" of the Old Testament. Then he focuses on finding the unifying thread that is the central theme of "Christ and his Church", before applying it to current situations. This approach allows him to make the study of the Old Testament both fertile and fascinating. Here then is a work of reference, both for personal study and for the prophetic ministry of the Word.
In this third volume, the author concludes his research with the books of the prophets that God sent to Israel to call the people to return to him. This examination highlights how the theme of Christ and his Church is a rich promise among these messengers of God, who all looked to a glorious future.
Gareth Crossley - After a short career in mechanics, and following his conversion at the age of 19, he entered the pastoral ministry. He served several churches in central England for over 40 years. His burden is to present the gospel to people without contact with churches, especially those who are living in difficult and disadvantaged situations. For this, he followed several university courses, working in the postgraduate training of the servants of God in the field of the helping relationship. He has written several books, including Une nuée de witnesses, on the ministry of the evangelist, published by Europresse.
