Teaching the Christian faith to children, young adults and those new to Christianity can be a daunting task. Many resources portray Jesus Christ as coming on the scene of an unfolding drama in the world, heroically reinvigorating those who believed in God, and showing us a whole new side of God. Other resources overlook the rich examples of God’s work in the world in the Old Testament. Jacob’s Testimony demonstrates with Scripture that salvation through Jesus Christ had been planned long before His birth and invites a reinvigorated understanding of the Old Testament. An in depth exploration of the Old Testament lays the groundwork for the salvation and eternal life that are now available through Jesus Christ and the power that can be ours through the Holy Spirit. An exploration of the New Testament ties the theology of salvation and faith back to the Old Testament at every step of the way.
Jacob’s Testimony may be used as a teaching resource in your own home, or in churches and small groups. Each chapter includes Scripture reading and discussion questions to help the reader apply the material. When Jacob’s Testimony was written, the author had in mind that a parent or spiritual leader would review each chapter with the reader. For parents, this is a great way to spend meaningful time with your kids and share your own stories of faith and your journey with Christ. You can keep up with the reader's progress, answer the reader's questions, and ultimately invite the reader to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
An optional leader's guide is also available.
