In this six-session Audio Bible Study, Rabbi Jason Sobel uncovers connections between the Old Testament and New Testament that are vital in giving us a complete picture of God's plan for sending Jesus into the world as the Messiah. In the Gospel of Luke, we read how Jesus revealed this connection to two disciples on the road to Emmaus. They listened as Jesus explained, "beginning with Moses and the Prophets . . . what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself," and later asked themselves, "Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?" (Luke 24:27,32).
Too many of us today are likewise missing this connection. We are settling for just the New Testament or the Old Testament and not understanding how the Bible fits together as a whole to offer one complete picture of Jesus. Both the Old and New are God's priceless possessions . . . and neither one is more or less valuable than the other. However, together their value increases dramatically! For both are needed in order for us to experience our full inheritance in God's kingdom and His beloved children.
As Rabbi Jason unlocks these connections, participants will come to understand:
How the foundation of the Bible (The Torah) fits with the rest of ScriptureHow the Torah answers the question of "who is the promised seed?"How all of the Bible works to give a picture of the promise of MessiahWhat implications this has for their lives as the Old and New Testaments come together
The Mysteries of the Messiah will show participants that God's Word—written by many people over thousands of years—is not a random selection of people and stories but of intricate connections. Rabbi Jason will connect the dots, helping them see with clarity and "high definition" what God intended.
