Finding Christ in the Old Testament


Does the Old Testament say anything about Jesus? Apparently, he thought so! In Luke 24:25-27, Jesus says, “25 ‘O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?’ 27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.”

So what does the Old Testament say about Jesus, and how? Our summer series is based on the book, Jesus on Every Page by David Murray. It’s your guide for reading the Old Testament in a way that reveals the gospel in Jesus Christ. Each week, we take a look at a different way he is revealed there, and how the Old Testament adds to our understanding of who Jesus is, what he​ ​did for us on the Cross, and what he is​ still doing for his people.​

Various teachers will be exploring these topics as we work through the Old Testament.​

Living for the King

filligree

​L​iving for the King is New Life’s foundational discipleship course built on the truths of God’s grace i​n Jesus Christ. As we learn more deeply what it means to be justified by faith and adopted as a child of God, we develop a new identity. Our self-image begins to be defined by God’s view of us, rather than the opinions of others or by our own success or failure.

LFK applies the message of grace to all of our relationships and to every area of daily life. As we understand what Christ has done for us more deeply, his character takes root in our lives. We begin to understand our gifts and calling in light of God’s kingdom purposes. Our responses to challenges and even our own failures changes so that we are no longer crushed by guilt, anxiety and depression. In the end, it helps every individual develop a personal plan for Christian growth and service.

Living for the King is modeled after the “Sonship” material, first written by Jack Miller and now available through Serge.  Much of the course is based on Paul’s writings in the book of Galatians.  Homework and readings provide tools that God uses to change our way of thinking about faith and life.

The 2018 Living for the King course took place weekly on Monday evenings from January 15 to April 9, from 7-8:45 pm.  Please check back here for information about the next course.  Contact the church office (215-641-1100) with any questions.
