Story Behind the Story

The Story Behind the Story: Summer Sermon Series

Our pastors will preach this summer on how our understanding of the New Testament can be enriched by the Old Testament stories that preceded them.  From Sunday, June 16, through Sunday, August 11, the pastors will examine parallel ideas from Scripture, such as:

  • the sacrifice of Isaac and the sacrifice of Jesus
  • Jonah in Joppa and Peter in Joppa and their responses to God
  • how Miriam in Exodus and Mary and Elizabeth in Luke praise God after a miraculous event of God liberating the oppressed
  • the throne room of heaven as seen in Revelation and Isaiah and what God’s kingship says to us
  • how Jesus prayed and embodied the Psalms
Come to worship this summer and experience a deepening of your faith as you hear the story behind the story!
