We hope you’ve loved Seamless just as much as we have. Over the last two weeks, we’ve seen how God’s story throughout Scripture has always been pointing toward the gospel.
We watched Adam and Eve hide from God and wondered what we would say if God asked us, “Where are you?” We learned about the importance of a name through the stories of Abraham and Jacob. In the story of Moses and the plagues of Egypt, we saw the need for the sacrifice of a spotless lamb, foreshadowing the coming sacrifice of Jesus. God brought his people out of Egypt in a miraculous way, yet his people still rebelled and doubted. In reading their story, we saw our own story – we’re just like the Israelites.
As their journey continued, we watched how some of God’s people were faithful, like Boaz and Ruth. And even those who were faithful still messed up, like David, the man after God’s own heart. God has always been faithful to His people, in spite of their sin. He was faithful to Adam, Eve, Abraham, Isaac, Moses, Aaron, Rehab, Boaz, Ruth, and Hosea. He will be faithful to us. All of their stories pointed to the One who was coming to set things right, once and for all – Jesus.
The last two weeks have only scratched the surface. There’s so much more to learn about the complete story of the Bible. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to pick up a copy of Angie Smith’s Seamless (http://bit.ly/buyseamless) to continue learning how the stories of Scripture come together as threads forming one great story. In addition to hearing more from Angie, you’ll find maps, Bible facts, and word studies that bring the Bible from black and white to full color.
If you want to dig into this topic more on your own, the Bible study book is just what you need. This study is also the perfect option for a group. With that in mind, on the Lifeway website (http://bit.ly/buyseamless), you’ll find options for a leader kit as well as a modified version for students and youth.
