A closer look at the lives of Old Testament patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joshua.
The book of Genesis reveals a family history – a human history – with division, forgiveness, betrayal, and love. Generation after generation, God is at work in these otherwise ordinary people, and despite their many failings, we can see the character and hand of God in the lives of our spiritual forefathers.
These seven insightful sessions help us to realise that:
- God has a purpose for each of our lives, and is constantly working out His redemptive plan for humanity
- There are significant parallels between these ancient stories and the teachings of Jesus
- Despite being highly revered, these figures shared the same human nature that we do, and we can learn from them today
Icebreakers, Bible readings, eye openers, discussion starters, personal application make this a rich resource for group or individual study.
